Now dig this

I've always wanted Midnight Sun to have a list of all the events going on around town. From time to time, I've tried to do it myself (remember Three Hot Weekend Tips and Whatchadointhisweekend?).

But inevitably, it either takes up too much time or I just get sick of it ...

Finally, we have a solution. If you'll notice, there's a new feature in the Midnight Sun Sidebar (over there to the right of your screen). It's Baltimore Event Listings, courtesy of the lovely site Thanks, Localist.

Now, Localist is going to round up the events for all of us, which means less work for me and more juicy info for you.

I found an amazing site called 600Block. It lists specials for bars and retaurants, by neighborhood, food/drink type, type of food/drink. What's shocking is how functional the interface is. With a few clicks you can find wine and wings specials in Federal Hill for tonight.

Check it out:

I am pretty sure that the Sun wrote a story about 600 Block (and Localist) -- possibly last year.

You mean the newspaper The Sun that they used to publish in Baltimore? ;-P

OMG, newspapers are, like, soooo not green. Do you know how many trees they kill to make newspapers? Like, a lot. That's why I find the automatic hand towel dispensers we have here a little funny.

I used to get the Sunday Sun just for the crossword, but then I had to deal with the extra three pounds of guilt.
