First of all, I'm going to take this time to remind you that Sunday is Daylight Savings. Sacrifice sleep and move your clocks forward an hour, folks.

Now that we've got that out of the way, on to the fun stuff.

On Saturday night, Historic Annapolis will present "A Conversation with Thomas Jefferson." Portrayed by Colonial Williamsburg official Thomas Jefferson, Bill Barker, Mr. Jefferson will discuss his thoughts on slavery, the economy, the events leading up to the War of 1812, and other such diverse topics. Afterward, the audience will have the opportunity to ask questions.

"A Conversation with Thomas Jefferson" takes place in Francis Scott Key Auditorium at St. John's. It starts at 7:30 p.m., and tickets run between $10 and $20.

Looking forward to St. Patrick's Day? Get an early start on the occasion in Cambridge.

Outside Leaky Pete's Oyster and Wine Bar in Cambridge, Paddy in the Alley will bring you live music, including the Tom Larson Blues Band, delicious food, green beer, food and craft vendors, and more. At 6 p.m., the party moves inside the restaurant with musicians Meg Murray, Angela Miller, and Tom Butler. But, if you'd rather stroll the town, you can check out all the Second Saturday festivities that Cambridge has to offer.

If you want to spread your wings a bit, set your sights on Baltimore.

At the France-Merrick Performing Arts Center, Broadway Across America is showcasing The Addams Family.

According to Gomez and Morticia Addams, Wednesday's new relationship threatens to pull their household apart.
