The Mayan end-of-the-world prediction for Friday hasn’t halted plans for concerts, shows and events. As always, there’s a ton to do in the Rochester area.

Now, finally, there’s a one-stop resource to keep you up-to-date on it all.

Welcome to What’s Up ROC, your comprehensive source for entertainment, arts, dining and any and all events and activities around town. It’s our replacement for Metromix Rochester, an evolution of that site with greatly expanded local content and capabilities.

Whether you’re searching at your desktop on your computer or at a bus stop on your phone, you’ll find the latest and most useful information around.

Take our movies page: People have asked for a single place where they can find summaries, times and reviews specific to our area. Our searchable database is the answer. But we didn’t stop there. Our movies section also includes articles about the latest films, Jack Garner’s film columns and more.

Our dining directory covers more than 100 restaurants, linked to reviews and stories our expert food reporters have written. You can search by type of cuisine or by area, including your current location. The restaurant database will continue to grow, based on your recommendations. And partnering with our Flavors of Rochester website will keep you in-the-know on the latest trends and openings.

You’ll also find bar and band information, including the latest on new shows, clubs and more on our Nightlife page. Our arts page will feature theater reviews, concert and event previews, our arts blogs and more. And our overall calendar has, well, everything, from lectures to hobbyist meetings.

We know that your time is precious. Why waste it on searching all over the Web just to figure out what you want to do tonight or this weekend? Head to What’s Up Roc and get busy with enjoying your time out.

As always, let us know your thoughts, ideas and ways to improve. Thanks — and hey, let’s have fun out there.
