There are hundreds of events happening this week, and our critics have recommended the very best for you. But there are many, many more that fall outside of their carefully curated scope. Here are the top ten Stranger than usual picks for the upcoming week, including an adult Legos session, a creepy-crawly cocktail evening, and some Back to the Future-related parties.
Legos and Libation
The Library teams up with Legos and Tin Dog for an adults' playtime, where you can either participate in the Lego Building Challenge or "create free-form designs."

Back to the Future Day
The day Marty McFly travels to in the movie is finally here. In honor of the occasion, several movie theaters will be playing the films, starting at 4:29 pm, when he arrives in 2015. You'll also get $5 off admission at the EMP if you say "Great Scott!" at the ticket counter.
