Just joined the local Moose lodge (holy shit, cheap drinks), and I'm not 100% what the point was (except for cheap drinks). Any other members, or Elks, or Eagles, or the like? What were your experiences? What's the point?

I'd never join any organization that would have me as a member.

I just joined these guys. Good group of fellas, no broads, good fitness program. My one gripe is the clubhouse is a bitch to get to.

Like one of those places where old men hang out drinking?

yep. Grandfather and father were members, so my brother and I joined. It has been a pretty cool experience even for a jaded asshole like me.

I'm not, but friends are. One is an elk and a few are Masons. The Elks are great when you want to get out of the house and drink for cheap while you watch a game and they have events that are pretty good with a good crowd.

My grandma is a member of the Elks, VFW, Moose, etc., but her "home" base is the Eagles. She's been a member since the 50's and has been to dozens of them all around the country. I've seen pictures of her partying it up with my grandpa playing pool in a fancy dress and my grandpa in a tie.

I remember as a kid always seeing the alcoholic-smelling Santa at Christmas time and doing the Easter brunches when we'd go visiting her. She's 90 and still goes there three times a week. She's in a shuffleboard league at one of them.

In PA, some social clubs were allowed to sell booze until 3:30 am. I don't know if that's the case anymore, but when I was younger I belonged to something called the Manor Club, just so I could go drinking after the bar closed.
