I propose the following:

In order to confound those that are not members, we should all agree to shake hands with people in a really unusual manner (ie: with the ring finger folded inwards or somesuch) and then scowl and shake our heads at anyone who attempts one, with the words, "No, that's not the new handshake. I guess you are not a member..." and then promptly refuse to say anything further on the subject...

If I can follow that suggestion with a idea about the decor?, I think that it should be fresh and inspiring yet with subtle hints of understated opulence and possible menaces, I know that some Secret Societies are either "doom & gloom school of decorating or "Ultra Modern:- brushed steel and glass". Look what happens to them in the long run they never seem to last.

No windows though.  We'd have to hang black-out curtains and then ALL the neighbors would be wondering what we were trying to hide...which is nothing, of course.  From what I've read, curtains were the beginning of the end for several societies of the type we might be referring to.  But aren't.

It definitely was curtains for them in more ways than one. They drew to a close as a result.

My personal preference is minions.  Growing up, I was raised by some very steadfast minions.  They are some of the best people, you know.

Monkey Butlers always remind me of

Trench-coats? Gawd no - that would be for the Dieselpunk Not So Secret Society... down the street to your left, take a right at the first corner, then left up the dark alley.

You're sure there isn't also a delivery of Cloaks and Daggers in that lot?

   (Historical note - Trench-coats, like all things 'trench-related' are from 1914-etc)

A few gardening plots (Allotments) would be nice.

I am still confused as to why Jupiter threw those two rings on the ground and then disappeared in a flash of smoke?

Of course you should.  Only the you-know-what has been moved to a secret compound...But here's a cryptic map.  Try this.
