Can you believe it, it’s been 100 days since President Obama took office and love him or hate him, time certainly has flown by. Tonight he will plead his case for you to like him in prime time, the eleventh of his prime time press conferences since taking office on January 20th.

He has held more press conferences in his first 100 days in office then every president next to President Bill Clinton and President Harry Truman.

That’s not the only thing on the tube tonight though, check out a new episode of LOST as more answers are untangled and immediately following that it’s the new show The Unusuals, which really is very unusual.

Of course there is the obligatory American Idol fix that everyone needs.

Who knows when all of this will start/end because our friend President Obama likes to talk and his press conferences have been known to extend past the usual 1 hour time limit…although I think when you’re the President you get as much time as you want.

Uncle Sam is calling and his voice is getting louder and louder as tax day is here.  Time to pay the piper and there’s only one way to do that, file your taxes.  Whether you’re doing it online or are going to battle the long lines at the Post Office, it’s do or die on April 15th.  Uncle Sam is relentless in his pursuit of his money and he’s already spent a lot of it, so this year he needs your return!!

Hopefully you’ll be getting money back, but either way it’s time to bite the bullet and file those bad boys.

If you’re looking for a place to help you file your taxes you can find one here.  If you’ve already filled out the paperwork and just procrastinated on mailing them out, find the nearest post office to you here.

I know, I know, this isn’t really nightlife, but hey, with some post offices open until midnight, technically it can be considered nightlife!!

There’s lots to do this weekend, so let’s get right to it.
