(Not) Everyone Loves A Parade

New, 2 comments

Montauk held its 50th annual Friends Of Erin parade this past Sunday and, as many expected, the earlier start time put a hurtin' on some area businesses. From what we've been hearing, a few store owners?bars, mostly?saw a drop of 75% in year over year sales. While the Montauk Chamber of Commerce had expressed some reservations about moving up the start time, we would imagine that next year they'll be a bit more vocal in their opposition. On the plus side, we haven't heard any complaints about underage drinkers spoiling the fun. [Curbed Hamptons]
