What is a Maritime Table Lodge?
What is a Beefsteak Banquet?
Mariners Lodge convenes its own version of the Table Lodge form, which incorporates various maritime traditions and symbols, and references the "Noachidic Legend" from the earliest days of Masonry. Our Maritime Table Lodge is an old-school Masonic event, bringing back the days when a Festive Board of Masons was20boisterous, jovial and loud, when the air rang with the sound of clinking glasses and voices joined in song.
This Fall's Maritime Table Lodge incorporates elements from the rich New York tradition of the Beefsteak Banquet ��� those famous celebrations of gluttony where men gathered to eat massive amounts of aged steak, lamb chops, shrimp cocktail, pork belly and mini-burgers washed down with bottomless schooners of beer.
