Well, "permanent" is a term of art in this situation:  Basically, all I
did was put "3rd Mondays at Tiny's" on the Web site as a recurring date;
nothing at all prevents the group from deciding to change its mind on
Tuesday morning.

Good.  Consider it "permenant" unless and until changed, then.  ;->
That's actually all that the term ever means in that context, unless I'm
missing something.

The floor is open for additional proposals closer to downtown.  We're
all ears.[1]

My support for Phil's proposal owes much to the fact that it seems
workable and is the only one such heard in these parts for a long time
-- and that he's showing leadership in not only setting the thing up but
also saying he'll be there to get things rolling.

[1] Pending corrective surgery.
