(October 23) DINNERSTEIN IN JAIL The Baltimore Symphony Orchestra is sending a classically-trained pianist to prison. World-renowned musician Simone Dinnerstein checks in at the Maryland Correctional Institution for Women this morning at 11 for some "Jailhouse Bach." This performance is off-limits to the general public, but not to worry - Dinnerstein will be released in time for her concert Simply Classical tomorrow at The Music Center at Strathmore and Sunday at the Meyerhoff Symphony Hall in Baltimore.

Dinnerstein's "Jailhouse Bach" performance comes thanks to The Piatigorsky Foundation, an organization dedicated to bringing classical music to non-traditional venues.

(October 23-25) BOO AT THE ZOO This weekend it's Boo at the Zoo, time to trick-or-treat with some of D.C.'s creepiest and cuddliest creatures, tonight through Sunday at the Smithsonian Zoological Park in D.C. From 5:30 to 8:30 you can "enjoy" a tarantula talk, learn all about cockroaches and feast your eyes on the scorpion spectacular.

(Through October 31) ICHABOD'S TRAIL If you find yourself on an abandoned road in West Virginia on a dark and stormy night, you may have come across Ichabod's Trail and the Haunted Hay Ride happening in Dawson. Greenbrier Valley hosts some very haunted evenings through October 31st.

Web only: Directions: You can find old Ichabod by taking Route 81 into Virgina to Route 64, heading into West Virginia through Lewisburg. Take the Dawson Exit off of I-64.

Take the first road to the right (Grassy Meadows Road by Old Mill Antique Store). At the small intersection continue straight onto Bennett Mountain Road.
