Adulthood doesn’t have to be all responsibilities and “accidentally” falling asleep in front of the TV before 9 p.m. And if we learned anything from last year’s The Lego Movie, it’s that legos aren’t just for kids. So tonight, let your inner child run free at Legoland’s monthly just-for-grownups event.

This month’s Adult Night boasts a Game Show theme, and they’ll be featuring popular games like Family Feud, Wheel of Fortune, and Jeopardy, each with their own fun Lego twist. There will also be Lego-building challenges, prizes, raffles, and a chance to donate to Merlin’s Magic Wand, a charity that benefits kids in need.

Oh, and there’s obviously a cash bar, so you can enjoy one of the few perks of adulthood while going ham with those plastic bricks. Everything is awesome. (Except when you accidentally step on a Lego piece. There is no worse pain in the world.)

And who knows: If you happen to unearth a secret hidden talent for Lego-building while you’re there, the Legoland folks are in the market for a new Master Model Builder.

August 19, 7-9 p.m., $22.95 per ticket, 18+, LEGOLAND Discovery Center Boston, 598 Assembly Row, Somerville, 866-228-6439,
