Thanks Ryan - that's correct. I want to get a url like that for any event
that is created in the events table in the db.
Thanks for the help - I'll try out the slug-way...

You would like users to be able to access a URL like the following, right?


To accomplish this, you'll need a column in your database table that
contains e.g. for this record the string "chicago-the-musical". I've heard
this type of value referred to as a "slug" so I'll call it that.

Your route will be something like:

app.get("/events/:slug", function(res, res) { ... });

In the "..." code, "chicago-the-musical" will be available to you in
req.params.slug. You can query your database for that to get the relevant
