Detroit Moxie's Weekend Roundup—New Year's Eve Edition

New Year’s Eve is upon us in Detroit and everyone is getting ready to countdown to 2012. It’s that time when we look back at the best and worst of the previous year while setting goals for the next twelve months.

I’d like to dream about what might happen in 2012 but you never know where life is going to take you. I could have never—in a million years—imagined the path that 2011 has led me down.

For now, I’ll say that we have plans to FINALLY get back to England for a vacation. It’s been over three years since we’ve seen our friends and family across the pond. Beyond that, I’ll set my goals and work as hard as ever but who knows where this crazy train that we call life might take us.

So, back to the task at hand. There are tons of fantastic events going on in Detroit this weekend. Get out and ring in the New Year, Detroit-style!

Weekend Roundup

1. 2011 Great Lakes Invitational - Get your skates on mate, it's time for college hockey in the D! Be sure to check out the "Science of Hockey" event by Michigan Tech where you can walk on water and measure the speed of your slap-shot. December 29—30.
