Hi. I go by tkatt here on Brickset. I've been a Lego fan for 30+ years. I've been planning to build a Lego city for all that time. Things have always gotten in the way though. First my parents wouldn't let me take over a room in our house, then I was a teenager, and then I lived in small apartments. When I finally moved to a house of my own with an extra room, I became a father and lost that extra room. Five years later and my obsession has grown strong. Both of my kids stopped eating Lego and now we collect as much as possible. Once my youngest gets past her destructive phase I hope to finally put my Lego city together. In the meatime I've been building the sets that I've been storing in the closet for the past few decades, some for the kids, some for a display shelf.
I think Brickset is great and I decided to start using the forums when I realized what a wealth of information was available here.

If either of you live in or near the Twin Cities, there are several active AFOL groups such as TwinLUG that you might want to check out. I've heard good things about them, and I've visited the Brickmania Toyworks where they meet (and if you haven't checked *that* out, you need to visit during their next open house!).
Thenos, I totally saw that clearance first.
The LEGO Imagination Center at the Mall of America is doing another July event this year and this weekend aka July 12-14th with a build event, the map build and MOC's from some local builders, I believe that Sunday runs until 5 or 6ish but you can call the store to be sure.
I agree that the TwinLUG folks are great folks but am admittedly quite biased :)
Oh, I was here first, that clearance is mine!
