Join The Block Party at Legoland.
Winning an Olympic gold medal would be totally awesome. But you know what would be even more awesome? Winning a gold medal with a chunk of freakin' meteorite embedded in it.
And that's precisely what a handful of Olympians will be able to take home a next year's Games: Those who win gold at the 2014 Sochi Olympics in events on February 15 — the one-year anniversary of the meteor that hit Chelyabinsk, Russia — will be awarded medals with bits of that infamous space rock built right into them.
How cool is that?
Probably cooler than your feeling right now, considering the beast of a weekend we just had.
But we'd like to think you guys have all the makings to be the next great champion. And if you want to earn yourself that gold medal in partying, you're going to have to get right back out there tonight.
Adult Night at Legoland Discovery Center Grapevine
The powers that be require any adult wishing to check out this Lego wonderland to bring at least one kid — except for one day out of the month. Lucky for you, today is that one day. Go check out all the Legos you can handle at this adults-only event. Make sure and get your tickets from the link above, though, or else they'll be $7 more expensive at the door. — Stephen Young

If not, we have some tips for you here — Jessica Petrocchi.
Badass Jazz at Amsterdam Bar
While Monday is typically a slow night for most bars, it remains one of the Amsterdam's busiest. That much be credited to local sax wizard Shelly Carroll and his crop of old-school jazz cronies. Just because there's no cover charge doesn't mean this isn't the best jazz event in town. Don't believe us? Carroll proves as much on a weekly basis. — Cory Graves
