Except that right now, you are in Daylight Savings Time, which is CDT, 
which is UTC-5. Yes?

I'm not sure what's up with that 7-hour adjustment on Upcoming. Iowa is 
definitely in the Central zone. There may be a more general bug at 
Upcoming: I just checked an event in New York City, and it also 
specifies a -0700 offset.

I hate daylight savings. And timezones, in general, are a PITA when you 
have to deal with more than one. "My server is in timezone A, but I live 
in timezone B, but I'm posting information about an event that will 
occur in timezone C. Shoot me now."
