Since you do quite a bit of photo taking that requires wide angle, maybe u can consider a replacement for your kit lens -- get the AFS 17-35 mm f2.8. It will improve image quality.
If you do not have a flash, go for SB800. Get a larger bag to put in your new accessories. A 50 mm f1.8 will also come in handy in very low light conditions.

since you're doing event shoots you might need a flash unit, probably an SB600 or SB800. future purchases should be wide angle lens, tele zoom lens, macro lens, portrait lens, etc etc.. it never ends..

Since your lens is still serving you well, you may want to consider the flash first as Rusty suggested. And if you're getting one, make sure the head can tilt so you can get some 'bounced' flash. For a (really) long while I didn't like using flash because the pictures didin't look natural enough... until my friend showed me the effect of bouncing the flash off the ceiling. Got one really soon after that

I thought a better choice will be 70-200VR, 'cos of its large and constant aperture. If that's not long enough, get a 1.6x TC. Even operate at two stops slower with TC, it is still better than 80-400 at the zoom end, i think.
