If you haven’t been out to see A Billion Bricks (or you want to see it again), hurry! This is the last weekend. This weekend is also the Maple Sugar Festival at the Stamford Museum & Nature Center. What’s better than LEGO covered in maple syrup?
Actually, that’s a terrible idea. Please keep the syrup away from our display if you go.
