About this new calendar…

Some of you were curious enough to click on the link in yesterday’s EcoFest post and check out our latest incarnation of The Terminal’s calendar, destinations. We’re still working a few things out (actually, a lot of things out) over the next few weeks, but we thought the best way to get it started would be to invite you to send in your events to us using our new submission form. It will be easier for all of us, particularly for our beloved associate editor, whose duties included typing all of those things in.

It’s simple – put in as much information as you think we’ll need (realizing that we’re only going to post up to about 200 words anyway), submit your name, email and website URL, click submit and you’re finished.

We have a few other surprises in store for you, especially once the magic calendar does what it’s supposed to be doing (hopefully by the end of the week). You’ll understand when you see it.

Friday the 13th, Sloss Furnaces


The folks at Sloss Furnaces have decided to take advantage of the date on the calendar (and being one of the most haunted venues in the region) by showing the 1980 classic horror film. Just in time to start planning to watch the new film due out in 2009.

They’ll show the film in the cast shed, provide chairs if you don’t want to bring your own, and free popcorn! You’ll also be able to bring in your own food and drink. A great spooky venue indeed…

For more information please visit their website or call 205.324.1911.

Cost: $5

Time to figure out what to do this weekend…

So I should just say that Sam’s picks are ready over on Timetable.

Well, they are.

As are Christina’s suggestions for weekend plans…

Her thoughts are over here.

Fresh Ground Comics, Safari Cup Coffee

We figured it’d be best to use the words of the FGC to describe the event as it’s the best:

For those who know us, good to see you again, for those who don’t, we provide the finest alternative, lactose and gluten free stand-up comedy you can buy. We’re returning to Safari Cup Coffee to kick off the first of our monthly shows. So after you hit all the art galleries that night, stop by for some stand-up comedy with Birmingham’s funny people. Funny ha-ha or funny strange? Most times both!

Cost: $5; $3 w/student I.D.
