Happy New Year's Eve, Twin Cities!
It is December 31, 2009, meaning that at midnight we celebrate the start of a new year, January 1, 2010. In fact, we'll start an entirely new decade! Have you picked out your New Year's resolutions yet?
It has been a crazy year in Minnesota, as well as the rest of the United States. A new president. A financial meltdown. A mortgage, real estate, and foreclosure crisis. Don't even get me started on Brett Favre, Al Franken vs. Norm Coleman, or the Christmas storm. And that is just this year! You can reminisce about the Aughts in Minnesota if you take a look at this Minneapolis Star Tribune Decade in Review.
If you still haven't decided what you want to do, check out the selection of events happening tonight in the Twin Cities from vita.mn. Just make sure of two things tonight. First, keep warm because it is hovering around five degrees even as I write this and it is supposed to stay close to 0 tonight. And second, if you choose to drink, don't drive. Designate a driver. Not only will it keep you and other people on the roads safe, but the Minnesota State Highway Patrol and local law enforcement agencies throughout the Twin Cities are cracking down on impaired driving during the holiday season.
From the team at Barker & Hedges Real Estate & Homes of Minnesota, have a happy and safe New Year's!
