Detroit Moxie's Weekend Roundup

February, our shortest month, has the oddest holidays. Take Groundhog Day, a strange little holiday where we push meteorologists aside and put all our faith in a groundhog named Punxsutawney Phil. This is Michigan; on February 2nd there will always be 6 more weeks of winter regardless if that rascally rodent sees his shadow.

I really like the movie, though.

Cirques De Solies (sp?) is at the Joe this weekend. They have multiple shows all weekend. Not sure of the cost but there is about 8 shows or so.
