Detroit Moxie's Weekend Roundup

So, we’ve had our first snow dusting of the season. Some named it “Death Storm 2009” and “Storm-Apocalypse.” In the end, it wasn’t much of a storm, at least not in my neck of the woods. I have heard of downed trees and power outages, though, so I can’t mock it too much. Does it feel a bit more like the holidays now that the white fluffy stuff is on the ground?

Weekend Roundup

1. Holiday Ice Festival in Downtown Ferndale - Featuring over 40 ice sculptures, live reindeer, and trolley rides. December 12.

2. Breakfast with Santa at the Detroit Zoo - A waffle breakfast complete with a gift for each child! Plus a special visit from Santa and a few of his wildlife friends. December 12 & 19.

3. Holiday Tea & Tour at the Edsel and Eleanor Ford House - Start off with a tour and then head to the Tea Room for delicious sandwiches, treats, and tea. December 12. 

4. Shop Detroit - The 6th annual shopping event offers free shuttle service from Downtown to Midtown, the New Center, and Eastern Market. Special events are happening around the city. December 12.

I would also add to the list of things to do in Metro Detroit this weekend a #wineup at the Grapevine of Novi. Here's the twitter invite with details:
