Detroit Moxie's Weekend Roundup

Yes, we all survived Snomaggedon. Or is it Snowpacalypse? It wasn’t so bad, it’s not like we live in D.C. where they freak out and just shut everything down when it snows. I have to say that I’m pretty happy I didn’t have to shovel any of the fluffy white stuff.

I know we live in Michigan but I’m ready for warm weather, sunshine, and green grass. For the record, I don’t mow the lawn either. I’ve survived 40 years without pushing a lawnmower and I’m certainly not going to start now.

New Palace Bakery in Hamtramck is one of the places to go for paczki on Fat Tuesday.

Weekend Roundup

1. Countdown to Paczki Day - Hamtramck hosts this pre-paczki party featuring free paczki, polka music, a paczki toss, and the "Paczki Express," a historic bus tour. February 13. (Disclaimer: I am 100% Polish, I live for this stuff!)

2. Motown Winter Blast - Marshmallow roasting, FREE ice skating, ice sculptures, wine tastings and Motown music! Campus Martius will be hopping this weekend. February 12-14.
