For those unfamiliar, Rube Goldberg was a Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonist, author, inventor, and artist who is perhaps best known for his drawings of complex machines doing simple things like household chores, using a napkin, or mailing a letter. Goldberg, who died in 1970, will be honored at the fourth annual building party hosted by Studio Bricolage. Here, grownups looking for playtime can come and help tinker together to create a tabletop-sized contraption that will presumably do something quirky. Bring your own project, join in on someone else's, or start something from scratch. Snacks and beverages will be provided. For more information, visit www.studiobricolage.org.
