If you enjoy playing with Legos, the perfect event for you is happening just a short trip away down I-90.

As a kid, I loved playing with Legos. I had a huge milk crate full of them. I could build with them for hours at a time.

Of course, I kept them all. When my daughter was old enough, we would play Legos all the time.

Whenever there are Legos around, I start putting them together.

Last year, I took my nephew to Lego Land and we had a blast. The only problem is the place is really for children.

If there was only a place for adults to enjoy Legos.

Well, now there is.

According to pjstar.com,

"Lego enthusiasts from around the world gather to build Legos, display Legos, play Legos, talk Legos, swap Legos and win Legos. They watch Lego mini-figure films produced by fellow enthusiasts, and play Lego bingo using cards with mini-figure characters instead of numbers and letters. They see who can build the most mini-figures in two minutes flat."

For a fan of Legos, that sounds like a great time.

Here's the best part for the "older" crowd.

"Brickworld Chicago is a convention aimed at adults."

If you're interested in attending the event, it's June 16-17 at the Renaissance Schaumburg Convention Center in Schaumburg, Illinois.
