Weekday Picks for Boston Kids: St. Patrick and LEGO for Grownups, March 14-18

I love to finish off a spectacular weekend by peeking at the coming week's calendar and all the gems that lie ahead. The next few days are certainly all about the wearing of the green for St. Patrick's Day, with different activities each day of the week to keep the whole family happy. But it's also a great week for parents with some events just for grownups that offer the perfect mid-week escape, including a fun night at Legoland® Discovery Center Boston (pictured). Finally, don't forget that the Boston Flower and Garden Show opens this week, as does a new exhibit at the West End Museum. On Thursday, Boston Ballet opens Kaleidoscope, and Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater starts its four-day run at the Wang Theatre.  Keep your eye on the full Event Calendar for other great upcoming events.
