Events + or other Calendar Solution

I had asked a similar question some time ago but now need to get my immediate situation fixed. I have a website for a group of professional business’s that meet on the First and the Third Wed. every month. I downloaded the Events + plugin and so far haven’t been able to set it up properly. I’m sure it’s something simple I’m overlooking (not thinking 100% lately)

I do see where you can have recurring events, but it appears you can only enter a date vs. 1st Wed. of the month etc…

Also for whatever reason I can’t seem to get the upcoming events to show up in the sidebar calendar or even a page with the nicer looking calendar. I’ve tried to overwrite theme settings, default, calendar etc… not having any luck.

I also installed the Buddypress Calendar plugin as well (I thought that the description said it would work in WP) but It doesn’t show up in my dashboard anywhere. Do I have to have a buddypress theme to use that plugin?

Any and all help is greatly appreciated.
