If Rudy speaks up, he might have a better approach. Typically, I'll
use an events table for events, accounts table for accounts, and a
join table (say, account_events) that indexes the ID's from both of

That way, you can have pretty names, info, etc that relates to an
event, and you're not duplicating information (say, the same even name
over and over)
