Though smoke-breathing dragons and fearsome pirates may be the stuff of scary stories, it's all just child's play at Pirates' Cove. Designed by the Elk Grove Park District for kids aged 1–9, the pint-sized amusement park tempts budding minds to explore and stretch their imaginative powers. From the deck of a recreated 18th-century pirate ship, captains and first mates can survey the surrounding playground and carousel to plan the location of their next raid. The park’s pond hosts an armada of paddleboats, encouraging daydreams of naval exploration, and the child-sized Castle of Camelot is ripe for a pillage-themed playdate or Model UN pirate tribunal. An onsite concession stand fuels spirited romps, and a picnic area is available for feasts brought from home.

From their vast catalog of music, AShah Entertainment?s DJs pluck original cuts and radio edits to spin at parties, complementing jams with optional music video mixing. But the entertainment company?s services extend beyond audio. Their team also supplies special events?from weddings to Indian gatherings?with artful lighting and photo booths, which document revelry more effectively than an undercover reporter posing as the host?s long lost geometry teacher.
?Routine is the enemy,? say the trainers at CrossFit Alpha Dog, whose students never see the same workout twice. Since the body adjusts to repetitive workouts, the team keeps it guessing by mixing up exercises with unpredictable combinations of organic movements, sprinting, plyometrics, and gymnastics. These workouts are designed to improve functional strength?practical musclepower that head trainer Tommy Moon calls upon during his firefighting career and that students may need when carrying an injured person to safety or a healthy person to a salad bar.
The gym itself reflects this functional approach. Gymnastic rings dangle from webbings of monkey bars, and a wide-open space offers ample room for lunges, sprints, and push-ups.
In the midst of wedding-day chaos or birthday-bash excitement, City2City Productions’ photographers and videographers capture memories that might otherwise be missed. Its DJs even spin the soundtrack for special occasions. They also commemorate entire seasons in life through family portraits, engagement photos, and senior-year photo shoots with friends.
Laugh Out Loud Theater sprays the suburban fringes of Chicago with a thick foam of world-class improv comedy. An extensive, experienced cast brings a highly interactive, audience-assisted experience to the intimate Schaumburg stage, drawing on hive-mind suggestions to kick off its inevitably LOL-worthy sketches. Shows rely heavily on audience participation, and LOL's indefatigable ad-libbers make it a point to invite willing audience members up on stage to help them achieve exponential levels of funny. Though eschewing egregiously blue humor, Improv for Grownups' cast refuses to turn down any suggestion, no matter how risqu?, which leads to raunchy riffs that retain the group's trademark wit. On Thursdays, Prime Time performances mix the group's regular ensemble members with in-training improvisers, delighting audiences while giving tomorrow's rib-ticklers on-the-job training.
Laugh Out Loud Theater has a full kitchen and bar?and there is no drink minimum?so guests can fill guts until they bust with each new course during the night's improvised feast of tomfoolery. Well-suited for date nights, group outings, or a way-funnier-than-usual family-bonding experience, Laugh Out Loud's improv comedy will inspire even the most nonspontaneous audience members to put down their cue cards and bust out a few jokes of their own.
