    If that happened at my lodge you could bet it wouldn't be in the newspaper.

    What was it doing there anyway. For years some people have claimed that all we do is drink and party and other irresponsible acts behind closed doors. This adds fuel to their fire. Definetly not the kind of publicity Masonry needs.

    Different jurisdiction, different rules. That particular incident happened in Canada.

    I would have no issue with alcohol being in a lodge, yes I know it is not permitted by Grand Lodge and would not support it if the law was not changed. The things I've read on Table lodges rocks! Most times alcohol is limited to X amount when allowed in lodge to remove the possibility of any drunkenness.
