The sun has just broken over the lush trees guarding Falls Road’s sloping hills, and Mike Kenny has already revolutionized his student’s short game. It’s PGA professionals like Mike who dedicate their time and energy to teaching novice golfers how to drive and experienced golfers how to better chew wood like a beaver. They instruct their students at one of Montgomery County Golf’s nine courses, offering classes for beginners, plus specialty clinics for adults and camps for juniors. Each teacher at every course champions his or her individual method of instruction. Mick, for example, uses a step-by-step process to thoroughly improve putting, chipping, pitching, and eliminating wasted strokes.

Extreme Laser Tag sets the stage for space-age combat with its labyrinth of smoky corridors, ramps, and neon-lit walls. Equipped with Nexus Generation laser-tag technology, the arena can host up to 60 vested combatants as they split into teams and vie for points by scoring chest shots on their opponents.

Large plasma monitors outside the arena display the hectic battles in real time, with beam-by-beam battle stats showing who is the scoring leader and who has been melted into plasmic goo. The facility frequently accommodates birthday parties, large corporate gatherings, and fundraiser groups; everyday customers and private partiers often join in battlefield alliances, exacting laser-powered revenge on bosses and double-crossing imaginary friends.

Rebounderz's facility features more than 16,000 square feet of springy trampoline surfaces. And that's not even counting vertical space, which is just as important considering that the main event here is launching oneself off the trampoline floors and soaring through the air. Inside of the jump arenas, trampoline floors give way to angled walls made of the same springy material, creating a safe and spacious atmosphere where high-flying acrobatics are the sport of choice. The open jump arenas allow for freestyling acrobatics; friendly competition, however, occurs in air dodgeball contests and on the basketball slam court. At the latter, kids can summon their inner NBA stars by flaunting their reverse dunk skills or pretending they're driving a Lamborghini during the offseason. Things take a mellower turn in the video arcade and in the WiFi?equipped lounge and cafe, where parents can relax and kids can snack between turns on the trampolines.

With an interest in fine art and a dream of owning his own business, Rick Turner felt like he didn’t quite belong at his job with the federal government. So, in 1973, Rick left his office gig behind and took a risk by opening his own shop. Settling into a quaint historic building, Rick enlisted his sister Lorraine to work in the shop. When the two started feeding large frame mouldings through a back window, they realized they needed a bigger space.

Today, at Turner Framing locations in Sterling and Seneca Square, the certified picture framers preserve children's artwork, needlepoint pieces, photographs, diplomas, and hole-in-one golf balls with museum-quality materials similar to those used in protecting King Tut's vacation photos.

The owners of First Break Sports Bar & Grill turned a tragic fire into an opportunity. After the loss, they took time to update the space beyond its original condition, and today gleaming granite tops the bar and hardwood floors shine throughout. A typical night sees the latest sports events flickering on 25 HDTVs, while smokers retire to a separate lounge where they can throw darts through the smoke rings they blow. Players send billiard balls cracking at 9-foot Diamond Pro-Am tables, and on Wednesday nights, participants count their chips during Texas Hold 'Em tournaments. But whether they're spectating or playing, diners can fuel up with selections from the bar's menu with sandwiches, wraps, and pasta until 2 a.m.
