    I'm an IT guy, and this just screams SCAM to me... a phishing scam to gather personal information. But, I could be wrong...

    Bro. Tony I did get that same email the other day as well. I avoided it like the plague and just deleted it. I figured that if it was something legit, I would eventually hear about it again in the future. I don't even know how that site found my email address. But yea, I did get that email as well. If you run into any answers from anywhere else, can you post them on here? I am all about social networking with other Masons, but that one screamed the same thing to me as well. Thanks for bringing it up as I had forgotten about it.

    If it is a legit site, then I do apologize to anyone that has anything to do with it. I just don't see a Masonic site like this or Freemason Network sending random emails to folks inviting them to join. Usually, when you are invited, it will show who the person is that invited you and this one doesn't do that. So, hopefully everyone does see this and is careful. Again, thanks for posting!

    You aren't the only one. There used to be one in Oklahoma City and I went there a lot. Sadly it closed down a long time ago. When I was a kid I thought raising the little flag was the coolest thing.

    Hahahh I know, right??!! When I was a kiddo living in Houston, that was my favorite place to eat. My parents would take me there for my birthday every year and we all liked it so much that we probably at there at least once or twice a month. Then we moved up to just North of Austin and luckily my parents found on there. It wasn't long before it was shut down and we would go to the one in Killeen (right next to Fort Hood). That one finally shut down and became a Hooters.

    After I got out of the Army and started working Federal out in El Paso, I was hoping to find one there. Especially since Panchos actually got its start out there in El Paso. Nope. I know there is one in Denton where I am moving to tomorrow, but it really isn't that good for some reason. Guess that is why they are closing up almost all of them. Oh well..lol Glad to know I am not the only surviving Panchos fan..lol

    Are you referring to Pancho's Mexican Buffet?
