It’s almost the first Tuesday of the month, which means it’s time for the monthly mini model build event.

Starting at 5 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 6, stop by the Aventura Lego store (at Aventura Mall) to build a scarecrow.

The best part? It’s free. The freebie is available while supplies last, and the event is open to children ages 6-14 only.

A new Lego store is opening at Sawgrass Mills in Sunrise Oct. 28, and Legoland Florida opens in Orlando on Oct. 15.

Youngsters who dine with their parents at some Original Pancake House restaurants in South Florida eat on the house.

Kids eat free with an adult purchase 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. and after 4 p.m. at most local restaurants in the Original Pancake House group.

It’s probably a good idea to phone first to be sure the restaurant in your neighborhood is participating.
