Let's all go to BrickMagic

Circle May 7, 8 and 9 on your calendars, race car fans. I'm assuming that everyone is a race car fan and that this term is like saying "champ," or "slugger."

The second weekend in May is BrickMagic -- a new adult fan of LEGO convention being held in Raleigh, North Carolina, and yours truly is headed there with a bag of bricks and a bag of books. I'll be a much smaller Santa, although I'm not sure which bag is for the good kids and which is for the not-so-nice ones. I guess it depends on whether or not you like to read.

For the visual learners in the crowd, Nathan Sawaya -- the brick artist who made the book's cover -- will be there building something spectacular and meeting the good folks who come to the convention and public display days.

I've been off the convention circuit for a year, so I don't know whether to pack a bathing suit or start ordering Sloe Gin Fizzes. But I'll be there, book in hand, glad to meet you.
