Do you like spending hours building up different sets and showing them off to your friends and family? Then you won’t want to miss Nebraska Brick Days—Omaha 2019 at the Mid-America Center this weekend. This Lego fan expo has members from Lego user groups across the Midwest displaying their spectacular, custom creations. But you don’t have to go just to browse—you can participate, too. Find out how you can put the pieces together here.
Saturday, March 30:Cirque Noir at Brothers Lounge is a freaky-fun variety drag show presented by Karma Lilola and Ziggy Quinn, two drag stars who are ready to take over the world. If you’ve ever been to a drag show, you know the drill. Bring some paper love for the performers, and in this case, also for the bar as they are a cash-only business. Lilola and Quinn are both producers and performers for local sensation Queerniverse Burlesque, so if you miss them this time around be sure to peep their upcoming performances here. Learn more about this weekend's event here.
