[Dixielandjazz] Mea Culpa -- Guilty as Charged

I was wondering about that - in all of the society flyers I get for  
my jazz calendar there is usually no mention of Moose, Elks, Odd  
Fellows, Masons or any other such. - just "The Lodge." I think this  
could make it pretty hard for someone new to the area to find the  
places (signage and street numbers can be very poorly marked or  
confusing, even with full information.)

If I know the correct nomenclature for the particular lodge in  
Northern California I usually announce it as a courtesy to my  
audience, but is there some particular reason not to mention the  
order names? Since a whole lot of OKOM societies meet in such places  
it seems like we should be cross-promoting!
