Detroit Moxie's Weekend Roundup

As we approach the holiday season, there are dozens of magical events going on in the Detroit area over the next month or so. Thanksgiving is a week away and, like it or not, it’s time to don our gay apparel and join in the festivities.

The holidays can be a stressful time for many so take time out and enjoy yourself!

Weekend Roundup

1. Detroit Derby Girls - Our hometown skaters open their new season at a new venue, Cobo Arena, to accommodate more fans. The double-header bouts feature The Motor City Disassembly Line, The D-Funk All Stars, and The Devil's Night Dames. November 20th.

2. Wiyos of Oz - The retro, folk band, performing at the DIA, weave their catchy music around the story of The Wizard of Oz. November 19th.

3. Detroit Tree Lighting Ceremony - The Christmas tree in Campus Martius will light up and the skating rink opens for the season. Entertainment from the Mega 80's, horse-drawn carriage rides, and more. November 19th.

4. Third Thursdays - Head down to Midtown for a celebration of local art, food, and fashion on West Willis and Canfield Streets. Shop local! November 18th.

5. Rock of Ages - Catch the national tour of this award-winning musical that features songs from the 80's including hits by Journey, STYX, and REO Speedwagon. Through November 21st.

Also, the annual Hob Nobble Gobble is on Saturday, November 20th but it's quite spendy.

Spendy is way to expensive for my wallet! The cheapest ticket is $350. It's a benefit for The Parade Company.
