diGJamaica.com - Event listings one-stop shop

Sharon Wright, Gleaner Writer

ON MY way to work one morning on Constant Spring Road, I noticed the inordinate numbers of placards and posters of varying levels of grandiosity, promoting a dance or stage show, and I had two thoughts.

One: why are all of these well-known brands violating the Anti-Litter Law; and what social options are available for those of us who are not interested in blaring sound systems and raving 'til a mawning'. I only see the soirées after the fact, in the Flair or in the Outlook without a clue on how to get into the inner circle where the invitations are issued. Well, it seems as if someone has heard my rambling stream of consciousness because I have found the answer.

The Gleaner's diGJamaica.com has a calendar (http://digjamaica.com/calendar) that is suited to persons like me who go for more serene settings. There are art exhibits, business-related workshops, road races, lectures and family-oriented events. The great thing for me is that I don't have to put as much effort into browsing various websites for the events as I do searching for items under my bed because a variety of events are listed in the same place.

And to my obsessive-compulsive delight, they answer every possible question I may have about the event before I even ask it. There are the venue address, start time, end time, contact numbers, a description of what to expect at the event and even an insert from Google Maps showing me spot on where the event is.

The only thing I wish they would add is a rating chart for the sanitary facilities, so I don't end up doing the 'dance of desperation' at the end of a long line to the loo.
