Washington's Wooden Teeth

Come to Fraunces Tavern in the Financial District, site of George Washington's last meal with his troops following a revolutionary war victory. It is still the site of a false wooden tooth which purportedly once belonged to the Father of our Country. Rumor has it that the plastic casing in which it is housed is bullet proof.
