Hello all. I’ve been very busy lately and the reason for which I am finally able to take the wraps off of. I’m very excited to announce Bricks LA. It will be the first AFOL convention held in the Los Angeles area and it’s happening this May 16th and 17th. The details are in the press release below. Hit up the Bricks LA website for complete registration information. Registration for attendees is now open and we are also accepting applications for vendors. Yes, this is real, and this is really happening. I myself can hardly believe it, but it is! Whether you come as a guest during public hours, or register as an attendee, we hope to see you there!

Got questions? Post in the forum thread, email me directly, email Bricks LA, or use the contact us page.
