The National Law Enforcement Museum at Judiciary Square boosts its reputation as an interactive shrine to crime and crime-solving by turning the entire 57,000-square-foot exhibit space into a crime scene — and turning visitors into detectives! If the amateur sleuths are good enough, they could win a $25,000 “reward.”

From now until October 6, visitors to the museum are invited to look for clues among the 800 artifacts and 100 interactive displays to discover the identities of the Queen of Diamonds’ gang of art thieves. Visitors will receive a “case file” with important information on the gang and its nefarious history.

The newly deputized “detectives” are invited to uncover the names of the five-member crew of outlaws by solving a series of puzzles embedded throughout the museum’s exhibits. If the amateur sleuths are good enough, they could win a “reward.” Successful sleuths will have their names submitted for a drawing for $25,000 in prize money.

Dear PoPville readers,

Let’s be honest — September is rough. It’s back to school, back to work and back to traffic. As your to-do lists get longer and the days get shorter, it’s always a good idea to step back, take stock and figure out what you can delegate.

Cleaning is often the easiest and most impactful task to leave to someone else. As a 2017 study found, spending money on a time-saving service like home cleaning decreases stress and increases wellbeing. That said, most cleaning companies treat their workers terribly, forcing you to link your relaxation with someone else’s stress.

Fortunately, it doesn’t have to be that way. With Well-Paid Maids you can have a clean home with a clean conscience. We are the D.C. area’s first and only living-wage home cleaning service. All of our employees make at least $17 per hour and receive a full benefits package, including 22 paid days off, health, dental and vision insurance, 100% employer-paid short-term disability insurance, 100% employer-paid commuting costs, unemployment insurance and workers’ compensation insurance.

Real Estate Fresh Finds is a weekly selection of newly-listed properties in the District, brought to you by Real Living At Home.

Featured Property of the Week: 1700 17th Street NW #401

Fantastic 2 BR/2 BA condo unit with 1,100+ square feet in the heart of downtown D.C., with an impeccable WalkScore of 98 “where the High Heel Race, the Pride Parade and the 17th Street Festival happen right outside the door!” The Admiral Dupont Condominium building “has a new fitness center on the roof with fantastic views of the Monument and downtown, and a large roof deck that is great for 4th of July Fireworks!”

The unit features hardwood floors, stainless steel appliances, a balcony, a wood-burning fireplace and even the already-mounted flat screen above it. This home has it all and is so fresh that it hasn’t even had an open house yet, so get ahold of your agent if you want to see this convenient and chic condo.

Other Notable Fresh Listings:

  • The Most Expensive Home of the Week is a massive 5 BR/5 FB/2 HB “serene, architectural masterpiece [that] combines the elegance of yesterday with the luxury of today, including 6k square feet across 3 levels, a 2-car garage, pool, wine cellar and tennis courts all for $3.2M.”
  • 1 BR/1 BA Petworth condo with a recent $19k price reduction is priced to sell.
  • “Rare opportunity to finish this two-unit conversion project in a fantastic neighborhood. Property already has demolition work completed — shell interior.”
  • Your Auction Property of the Week is a 4 BR/2 BA Petworth townhouse that needs A LOT of work, likely a complete gut job on top of unloading all the trash from the previous owner.

Virginia Tech has been making local headlines lately with the announcement of its Innovation Campus in the newly-designated neighborhood of National Landing.

While the new campus will help cement the university’s regional footprint, Virginia Tech has been quietly providing graduate education opportunities in the D.C. area since 1969.

Virginia Tech’s Pamplin College of Business has offered its MBA programs in this region for decades and more recently made the decision to narrow its focus to working professionals in urban centers across the commonwealth.

“What we did at Virginia Tech a few years ago was to say that we really want to focus on the working professional — someone who wants to enhance their career or make a change in the direction of their career, but not at the expense of continuing to be a business professional,” says Pamplin Dean Robert Sumichrast. That allows those students to come into the classroom, he adds, “and use what they’ve learned as part of the experience of the MBA program.”
