Grand Marshal Luncheon

As promised, Gurney’s Montauk on Friday, March 22, was the location of Behan’s Annual Grand Marshal Luncheon, “the party where the grand marshal is introduced and roasted and presented with their parade sash, top hat, and shillelagh.” This year’s 57th grand marshal, Gordon Ryan, Esq., was forced to share his secrets with an all-Montauk crowd, as he was roasted by East Hampton Town Supervisor Peter Van Scoyoc, former East Hampton Chief of Police Eddie Ecker, both of Gordon’s daughters, Robin and Loralee, Montauk Friends of Erin president Brian Matthews, and others. Joan Lycke and Diane Hausman hosted.
