If you're doing events, its probably easiest to just have one main table:

    ID (auto_increment, primary key)
    Title (char)
    Summary (char)
    Details (blob ...)
    InformationContactID (if you maintain a contacts table)
    PosterContactID (ditto)
    EndTime / EventLength
    LocationID (if you maintain a locations table)
    Price (if any)
    HostedByID (to a contacts table again)

Just a question to the general population; anyone know of any good SQL 
database schema sites?  C, C++, Java, Perl, etc. all have code 
repositories all over the Internet, but I'm not aware of a good site for 
searching for 'standard' database schemas for given things (like the above).
