When I was younger, it seemed like the radio station mega-concert was the coolest thing on the planet. Nowadays you can't throw a bottle of $1,500 champagne in a New York nightclub without hitting a Coachella, EDC, or Bonnaroo, but back in the day, festivals like that only happened once in a blue moon (who remembers Woodstock '94?). So instead, we went to one-day, local radio sponsored concerts in sports stadiums with vaguely nonsensical names like the "River Rave". Well, it's a brave new world (with far superior festivals) these days, but not every radio station is ready to give up just yet. And if the new versions of those old radio station shows can still provide the talent like Power 106's PowerHouse, there's still hope for the classic radio station show yet. More»

Stargazers around the world are setting up special telescopes and passing out cardboard eclipse glasses to view the historic celestial happening of Venus passing in front of the sun. At its heart, the spectacular show in the heavens is simple — Venus will cross paths between the sun and the Earth, and Earthlings will see a tiny dot floating across the surface of the sun over several hours. The planetary spectacle that won't occur again until 2117, won't be enough to significantly block the sun's light (like the awe-inspiring total solar eclipse which sweeps a shadow across the Earth), but you don't want to miss the exquisite opportunity to view one of the rarest planetary alignments happening tonight known at the Transit of Venus.

But despite the fact that St. Patty's falling on a Saturday is basically the universe's way of telling you that you will be vomiting in the next 36 hours, there's still a line between genial public intoxication and learning how to live the rest of your life without arms because you thought it might be funny to try to high-five a gorilla at the zoo. So in order to help you determine just what constitutes the right kind of wrong, we present our official GofG St. Patty's Day Do's And Don'ts. Ignore at your own risk. More»
