As the writer of the new got plans 2.0 column I’ve graciously been given the liberty to write what I wish when it comes to the awesome events happening each weekend here in Birmingham. I’m a good man for the job because I’m no freshman to what the city has to offer, but in this third week I’m finding it hard to pick and choose the Terminal-worthy events that you readers may be looking for.

So I’ve been thinking and have decided that I’m going to put got plans in your hands this weekend. Got plans 2.0 is three weeks old today; way too young to be setting a standard and definitely not to old to keep it from becoming what you want it to be. Our philosophy at The Terminal is to maintain a conversation between the contributors and our community. I want that with got plans; that’s why I ask you to comment if you know of something else going on or if I totally missed the mark in terms of my picks. Ultimately, my plans are your plans and they should be good plans ’cause you guys deserve them.

So this week I’m asking this favor; after you read the post, make a comment listing an event that you want to go to this weekend and make a suggestion about the types of things you’d like me to let you know about each weekend. Whether it’s more shows, more music, more arts and culture, or if you just want to know which bars and restaurants are the best weekend bets. Let me know so I can share.

I won’t leave you guys completely on your own this weekend. Here’s my quick and easy list of suggestions for the weekend:

It’s Friday the 13th again and Sloss Furnaces is hoping to make you feel like your luck’s run out by showing “Friday the 13th” in the shed. They definitely got this one right because scary movies are always scarier at Sloss.

The Tragic City Rollers are having their first home match of 2009 tonight. Check it out over on destinations.

For those of you wanting to get all HGTV, the Birmingham Spring Home and Garden Show is running through the weekend…

and this is the third Sunday of the month, so If you’ve never heard of it I’d check out On Stage @ the Carver, “a night of poetry and wine featuring Birmingham’s finest spoken word artists” at the Carver Theatre.

Whatever you do this weekend, be safe and enjoy it.

I enjoy hearing about all the events I am sadly unable to attend. I think the weekend setting is nice, but what about the rest of the week? Who is going to plan our every movement within the week? I nominate you! Personally, in this down economy, I want to hear about more than just music and arts. I want to hear about job fairs, in-town talks/conferences/conventions and things of that nature. I want to hear about events that have the potential to further our professional lives. Keep up the amazing work Jason! Everyone, be sure to check out one of Jason's latest achievements: the head copywriter/editor over at Pixel Shavings. http://www.pixelshavings.com/?/about Andre: Right on!

Congrats to @J_Don (I just think that the Twitter handle's a cool one)!! @Sam, I'd invite you to add that answer to our most recent Magic City Question, since Timetable is our arts and culture section. There are other sections on the site and that's where we'd post that type of stuff. Thanks for the suggestion.

I'd like to take this opportunity to do two things. First of all, apologize for the grammatical errors in the posted version of Got Plans that's been up since Friday morning - a corrected version was saved and never uploaded and it was my fault. There were several reasons for that, but it is still important to make that known. The other thing is to challenge folks to let us know when we've made mistakes but to not feel as though they have to hide who they are, at least from us. We already ask that you use a real email address when commenting; after that, you can be anyone that you want to be... The idea of this site is to serve as a avenue of communication. None of us here are going to take it personally if you tell us we did something wrong or if there are errors in grammar and fact in our stories. We do get a little nervous when you can't use a real email address (especially since we can track regular visitors via IP address). As we start our third year, I'll take what Jason said above and move it one step further - make some noise and let people know how you feel. The days of passive aggressive behavior needs to stop in order for this community to move forward, no matter who is at the helm of this site as it moves forward. Cheers.
