It’s BYOL, or draw from the limited plastic-brick stash provided. And will magic happen? “Honestly, I think magic occurs on a daily basis in our community.” says Weissman. “Sit at a bar during a Broncos game and you’ve got grandmas fist-bumping gangbangers and day laborers buying drinks for lawyers! You never know what might come from some good old-fashioned LEGO building, especially after hearing three interesting people pitch you on something they’ve thought long and hard about.”
One thing’s for certain, though. You will walk away with food for thought and food in your stomach. “I’m not sure what people will take away from this,” Weissman adds. “I hope they have fun, and I hope they connect with a new person, and I hope they are inspired. Maybe even for a minute they’ll hark back to the days of being a kid, when you played with LEGOs and dreamed about what could be instead of always worrying about what was supposed to be.” Sounds like a plan.
