The kinds of events where DJ Infinite spins are as unlimited as his namesake suggests. He started with colleges and private parties in the 1990s, and now he steps behind the turntables at weddings, holiday parties, class reunions, and school dances. Rather than just pressing play on an iPod, DJ Infinite mixes whatever tunes you want to hear live, transitioning between songs with expertly executed fades and beat matches. Besides keeping guests on the dance floor, DJ Infinite helps the rest of your event run smoothly by emceeing all announcements, or setting up video and lighting.
In 1744, a brick tavern began pouring brews on the edge of the Patapsco River. James and Andrew Ellicott bought the establishment in 1810 and added a stately home for their family. More than a century later, when Daniel and Steve Wecker discovered the former Ellicott property in 1988, it had fallen into disrepair. But, seeing the promise in the neglected building and its surrounding 16 acres of flourishing linden, holly, and magnolia trees, the brothers convinced the state of Maryland to lease them the property. Together, they restored the rooms and much of the original 18th- and 19th-century craftsmanship, transforming it into what is now The Elkridge Furnace Inn. Today, guests walk over original longleaf-pine flooring and admire the stairway’s tiger-maple spindles and the molding’s Colonial-style dogwood motifs on their way to the historic dining room, whose atmosphere helped earn the restaurant a spot among OpenTable's 100 Most Romantic Restaurants in the country.
The restaurant’s lavish French cuisine plays no small part in its success, garnering laudations and media attention from the likes of the Washington Post. Daniel Wecker takes the helm in the kitchen as executive chef, burying game meats—such as rabbit and quail—and fresh seafood beneath rich glazes and beurre blanc sauces. When faced with too many choices from an encyclopedic wine list, diners can consult the menu for recommended vintages to pair with their dish.
Each of Z Bounce's three locations features an indoor playground full of kinetic activities for kids. Though stationed inside shopping malls, Z Bounce makes the world of department stores, food courts, and price tags disappear the second you pass through its broad glass doors. Here, you're greeted by a colorful labyrinth where kids can play in a safe and monitored environment. Inflatable bounce houses, slides, obstacle courses, and tunnels ignite imaginations and encourage kids to expel the energy they'd otherwise release at the dinner table or during family meditation.

Between the demands of work, cooking for yourself, and speed-running the latest Super Mario Bros. game, you may never finish your novel about the overworked writer who can't finish her novel.
