Step into a world of flavor, creativity and philanthropy at the upcoming Halstead Food, Wine & Art Festival on Saturday, October 7 — where every moment is dedicated to giving back!

Sip, savor and sway to the rhythm of live music as you enjoy local vendors, a pet park, kid zone, paint and sip creative class and more.

RSVP to attend for free with an optional donation to the Lost Dog & Cat Rescue Foundation as well as an optional add-on to indulge in beer and wine tasting.

Whether it’s T. Swift tickets, cash money, or a prime parking spot, most DMV-area residents agree that time is actually their most valuable currency. A universal experience of car owners is waiting in a frigid lobby for hours on their car — even for basic maintenance.

Roda, formerly known as CarCare To Go, located their flagship service center in Rockville, Maryland to solve this problem. With a team of trusted valets, they offer free pick-up and return of your car. This is how it works, but first-time clients often include already baked-in requests when they book their first appointment.

Questions like:

  • “Can you text me when you arrive?” Communication is first and foremost in the valet car care world. Customers receive booking confirmations both via email and by text, including tracking service when a valet is dispatched to pick-up (and return locations.)
  • “How much? This sounds expensive.” There is no mark-up or charge for valet, even if you decline services. Unlike traditional service centers, Roda offers flat pricing on basics like oil changes (sedan or SUV,) with complete digital estimates and line-by-line approval of all costs before the work is done.
  • “Do I have to stay at the same location for pick-up and return?” No! Pick-up and return locations can be different. Getting work done at home in the morning, then running errands that afternoon in another part of town? All you have to do is say so. Valet service means they meet you where you are.

Recently covered in AdAge, Roda is changing the way people think about car care — putting trust, transparency, and time at the center of what they offer.

I’ve written this weekly column for 8 (!) years and made plenty of social media posts for my business, yet my most viral moment (by a long shot) came two weeks ago from…a picture of a bird! But not just any picture of a bird, it was a BALD EAGLE with a RABBIT in its talons! In Arlington!

So even though this has nothing to do with real estate, I thought I’d share with everybody the photo below that went “viral” and got almost 4,500 likes/interactions and 350 shares in the Virginia Wildlife Facebook Group. And later written about in The Zebra, an Alexandria-based publication.

I live in Alcova Heights and was walking to Thai Square (best Thai food in Arlington) for dinner with a friend when we turned the corner onto S Glebe Rd, just north of Columbia Pike, and saw this eagle perched on the wall with a freshly caught rabbit hanging from its talons. It sat there for a while posing for photos and letting us gawk, until taking off in a low glide across the parking lot, with the rabbit hanging below it. The wingspan must have been 6-7+ feet.

Check out how close it let us get in the video below, which I stopped filming as soon as it turned and looked me directly in the eyes and I decided my life was more important than continuing to film!

If you’ve captured some crazy wildlife photos in Arlington, let’s have it shared in the comments section!
