Armed with an army of innovative and certified shutterbugs, Olan Mills Portrait Studio provides families with high-quality portraits, continuing a mission that was established more than 75 years ago by founder Olan Mills Sr. Skilled in the art of capturing infants, children, families, and bunny-ears-giving ghost orbs on film, Olan Mills’s experienced smile snappers will take a series of poses amid a variety of backgrounds and lighting options. The studio is equipped with a selection of props—including numbers for birthdays, toys, and boxes—and patrons may bring their own photo-enlivening items from home. The resulting photos find their way to prints in natural color, black and white, or sepia tones; they can also be immortalized in the studio's signature Old Masters style, a canvas brushed with highlights to recreate look of an oil painting. Like the gentlemanly mariners of ages past with their full schedule of sea-battles, the photographers welcome appointments, but do not require them.

The sound of fans cheering the Atlanta Braves or the neon lights beaming from the nearby laser-tag course signals to guests entering Stars and Strikes' 55,000-square-foot facility that they are far from their neighborhood's bowling alley. At state-of-the-art bowling lanes, guests enjoy food and bar service while watching sporting events on large TVs. An adjacent room crisscrossed with a thicket of neon-green lasers joins a bumper-car arena where players raucously prepare for their workday commute. Complimenting the myriad activities and arcade with more than 100 games is a restaurant and bar boasting gourmet pub fare such as blackened-tilapia salads, popcorn-shrimp wraps, and green-bean fritters.

A staff technician will arrive up to an hour before the party starts to set up and inflate the bounce house, and customers can choose from a variety of options. Each of these inflatables—such as a medieval-themed bounce with a basketball hoop on the inside—has been thoroughly cleaned and sanitized, and gets safely secured before the party starts. To satisfy bouncing party-goers who've worked up an appetite, Bouncy Zone also rents treat carts that dole out sweets such as cotton candy and popcorn.

The coaches at CrossFit Douglasville choose the system precisely because of its generality. Its series of intense, constantly varied exercises can aid participants in perfecting fitness skills applicable to everything from running marathons to doing daily chores. During workouts that change each session, they lift weights, sprint, squat, lunge, push, pull, climb, and more—all useful, everyday motions that enhance speed, agility, and power. They ensure success, too, by scaling those effective exercises to everyone's abilities and fitness levels. Keeping everyone pumped is key, so all classes are infused with positive reinforcement, support, and an atmosphere of team spirit. In line with CrossFit's commitment to overall health, the trainers also host nutritional workshops and provide dietary advice.

DJ Twice has had plenty of time to hone his craft—he's been DJ'ing since age 11. Perhaps that's why the Brooklyn native so seamlessly blends contemporary hip-hop, R&B, pop, reggae, and soca. Though the mixologist tweaks his style to fit the event and host's taste, DJ Twice specializes in high-energy beats that keep the dance floor packed.
