Specializing in birthday parties and kids' art classes, Create Hands On helps create memories by combining family bonding experiences and creative education with more than six different, hands-on tasks for parents and tykes to enjoy together. At various stations around their space, kids hand-stuff their own personalized teddy bear and decorate it with extras, or use cool toys, scents, and toy surprises to craft their very own soap at a soap-making experience station. The jewelry station, which doesn't require tools, showcases pristine bits and bobs of jewelry making. Visitors can also use brush and paint to personalize hundreds of pottery pieces.
Even after 30 years, the culinary wizards at Blue Grotto are still committed to refining the restaurant?s menu, continually assessing its classic Italian dishes and asking how they can improve them. Rather than dulling meals with premade ingredients, the chefs instead prefer to work from scratch with local, seasonal ingredients. They prepare as much as possible by hand, showing a meticulous attention to detail while forming the gnocchi and stuffing mushroom caps with crabmeat. The restaurant?s alluringly generous menu washes down with an equally expansive wine list composed largely of Italian and Californian wines. Located in historic Federal Hill, Blue Grotto lovingly embraces guests in its pleasant setting, which boasts such comforting touches such as a fireplace and waiters who sing-speak in a gentle baritone.

At FunFlicks Outdoor Movies’ indoor and outdoor events, sound swells over the chatter of crowds, whose voices hush in the flickering glow of a portable big screen. During showings, the company's staff of cinematic emcees presents VHS, DVD, or Blu-ray reels on an arsenal of high-quality equipment. Audiences as large as 5,000 viewers gather on blankets or lawn chairs, eyes wide at the scenes of romance or attempts to get Darth Vader through airport security that leap from the projector. Hosts can also opt to amplify movie experiences with a theater-style popcorn machine, which kicks out fresh kernels throughout flicks. In addition to motion pictures, FunFlicks’ mammoth silver screens are available for transmitting popular sporting events, including NFL games and documentaries about the dangers of petting a mascot’s cubs.
