Argh. It would work for me, except for the part where I recently moved
my site to a server in a part of the US that doesn't observe DST

One quick and dirty way to fix Daylight Savings Time in Drupal would be
to add the following line in the function format_date in common.inc

   $timestamp += date("I")*3600;

It adjusts the timestamp if DST is currently active.  It fixed it on my
site, at any rate, it seems it'd handle both cases, DST enabled or not
using DST at all.

This seems to have an issue with the new event module, as the timestamps
from it are correct in DST.

Can you please advise where exactly in the function this should go?

If you know how to make patches make one and paste it here (file
attaching is busted for now).

If not, then provide the few lines above and below where the changes
should go.
