LEGO: Corner Garage

posted by Jeff | Sunday, December 5, 2021, 3:11 PM

The LEGO Corner Garage is the modular building set that sits on the corner. Above the garage you'll find a veterinarian office and a small apartment. There's a car lift, a roll-action door, and the tow truck hook moves too! It's a delightful set with nice architectural details.

LEGO: Space Shuttle Discovery

posted by Jeff | Sunday, December 5, 2021, 12:46 PM

This is the LEGO Space Shuttle Discovery, which somehow forms an aerodynamic spaceship out of square bricks. While not the largest of sets, the Space Shuttle Discovery has rich details and some clever building techniques, especially with the landing gear and wing mechanics. It's a super satisfying build, we just wish they would have included the external tank and solid rocket boosters.

LEGO: Titanic

posted by Jeff | Monday, November 29, 2021, 3:49 PM

LEGO has released the biggest and best set ever as the infamous Titanic. This "unsinkable" ship never made it across the Atlantic Ocean, and it inspired one of the highest grossing movies of all time. It includes more than 9,000 pieces and it's over four feet long when it's finished. Check out the time-lapse of this satisfying build.

LEGO: Downtown Diner

posted by Jeff | Sunday, November 28, 2021, 8:06 PM

It was one of the hardest LEGO modular building sets to get, and it's still one of the best looking ever. This is the LEGO Downtown Diner, with all of its glorious curves and windows.


Drink: Christmas Cookie

You don't need to wait for the season to enjoy a Christmas Cookie. This is another drink we discovered while sailing with the Disney Cruise Line. It's a variation on the classic mudslide, only it replaces vodka with peppermint schnapps. Jeff goes all out on the presentation. Impress your guests!

LEGO: Police Station

posted by Jeff | Sunday, February 28, 2021, 9:41 AM

The modular building series from LEGO has included some great sets, and they continue with the Police Station. In addition to being a functional place where your mini-figs can do their thing, it tells the story of a crook apparently obsessed with doughnuts, maybe more than the cops. As usual, there are rich details, and it's super fun to build.

Drink: The Cadillac Cooler

posted by Jeff | Saturday, February 6, 2021, 4:51 PM

When you're messing around on a cruise ship in the tropics, it's only appropriate that you engage in the consumption of fruity drinks. So behold, The Cadillac Cooler! This cocktail combines Malibu and Midori for a smooth and beautiful drink that "tastes like vacation." Go ahead, you don't have to be in the tropics to enjoy it.

LEGO: Star Wars Mos Eisley Cantina

posted by Jeff | Sunday, January 24, 2021, 3:59 PM

LEGO has brought one of the best parts of Episode IV: A New Hope to your kitchen table. The Star Wars Mos Eisley Cantina faithfully recreates the iconic mess where the droids stay outside, a dude loses his arm and Han Solo murders Greedo. It's all here! This is one of the most play-friendly sets ever made, with everything opening up and a staggering 21 mini-figs.

Drink: Pimm's is Pimm's!

posted by Jeff | Wednesday, December 30, 2020, 10:19 PM

When Jeff and Diana visited an English pub (at Epcot, of course), Jeff learned all about the fabulous beverage that is Pimm's. The journey looks back at Diana's Shakespeare study time in the UK and how it led to the discovery of this delicious drink.

LEGO took their street building to the next level with this beautiful Diagon Alley recreation. It's full of minifigs with short legs, weird construction angles and a many hidden wands in Olivander's shop.
