The team at Lindy Promotions brings more than just two decades of event-planning experience to the table. In many cases, they also bring the table. The company organizes bar crawls, holiday parties, and other events in East Coast cities such as New York, DC, Pittsburgh, and Atlanta. Their marquee events, which include the Nightmare on M Street, the Irish Stroll, and the Lindy 500 Limo Scavenger Hunt, have drawn thousands of partiers—enough to do the Electric Slide. Even better, the company gives back to the community as evidenced by the more than one million pounds of canned food they've donated and the thousands of dollars they've raised for non-profit organizations.

My Gym's Parents' Night Out program gives mothers, fathers, guardians, and packs of wolves a break from the 24/8 task of raising children and allows them a well-deserved night out on the town. While the grown-ups hit the golf alleys and karaoke rodeos of the greater Washington DC area, My Gym's staff of trained fitness and childcare experts keep young'uns mentally active and physically occupied. Kids will flex social muscles, exercise emotional intelligence, and bench-press cognitive processes. The three hours of fun include pizza, a movie, games, arts and crafts, story time, and a brief overview of how loop quantum gravity theory doesn't require string theory's multiple dimensions of space-time.
