Ladies and gentlemen...BrickWorld 2009

What's all the fuss in Chicago? It's not a Cubs-White Sox subway series that ended yesterday in the proper fashion with a walkoff Cubs win. 

The excitement making the city of mustaches quake is BrickWorld 2009. The first day of the adult fan convention was yesterday- over 400 attendees are expected to descend on the North Shore Westin this weekend. AFOL Bill Ward, has photos of the Serious Play session held on Thursday- the consulting arm of LEGO that uses bricks as part of corporate training and team building exercises. And Joe Meno, editor of BrickJournal, continues to take far more (and better) pictures of LEGO than just about anybody on the planet.  

If you've got a calendar, mark it for 2010 and the third weekend in June. I'll meet you there.
