If you’d been following my tweets this weekend, you might have caught on that I was traveling back to New York for something special: the first GeekDad Day at the Wired Holiday Store. With the gracious support of our friends at LEGO, and the awesome help of Lee Magpili and his amazing Mindstorms builds, it all went off fabulously!
We had a great crowd of kids and parents come in, especially considering the day that turned from cold rain to snow. We held a number of build challenges with the loose bricks LEGO had sent us, and winners (based on the highly logical judging of myself and Lee) walked away with some great prizes (including kits from LEGO, some Drawdio kits from Adafruit Industries, and The LEGO Star Wars Visual Dictionary and The LEGO Book from DK Books, all graciously donated!).
If you’re in the greater NYC area, we’ll be doing this again in two weeks, December 19th from 1:00-2:30, at the Wired Holiday Store, 415 W. 13th Street.
