A long-time car buff, he decided to create Columbia Junction Car Wash to test his business acumen and sharpen his service skills. The flourishing business, carried on today by his wife and two sons, treats car owners to a variety of gentle and high-tech services.

Scattered across nine states, Mini U Storage's secure facilities make frequent cameos on the reality TV show Storage Wars. At each location, rows of storage units in a vast range of sizes house personal goods, business items, and vehicles. Specialty climate-controlled units can help preserve sensitive heirlooms or souvenirs from historic snowball fights. The Mini U Storage staff further assists clients in the moving process by offering complimentary rental trucks, along with boxes, moving supplies, and locks for purchase.
With winter on the way, it's time to pull your heavier fabrics out of storage to air out the trapped sweat from last winter and the must of dead attic bears. Instead of dousing your wool suit in perfume, Febreeze, or deer scent, send it to the cleaners for the fresh scent and superior fit of a newly dry-cleaned suit. With today's Groupon, $25 gets you $50 worth of dry cleaning from Hourglass Dry Cleaning.

Located on the lower level of residential tour de force Silo Point in the Locust Point neighborhood, Privé Salon & Spa is an urban oasis devoted to aesthetics. Chandeliers that look like they belong on the top of a Greek goddess's Christmas tree dangle provocatively from the ceiling, flanked by exposed beams and well-stocked shelves. Owners Johnna Sychuk and Jennifer Beck both trained with legendary mane man Chas before creating their own state-of-the-art palace of pampering. Glance over their salon services card; lady snips average $40–$75, and guy's cuts are $30–$50. Privé also offers coloring services including retouching ($60–$80), full highlights ($90 to upward of $130), and lowlights (starting at $10).
From 7 p.m. to 1 a.m. on Tuesday, February 12, the streets of Fell's Point come alive as crawlers hop from pub to pub, enjoying specials on food and festive drinks such as Absolut masquerade punch and Malibu hurricanes. A commemorative button, which can be picked up at Woody’s Rum Bar starting at 6 p.m. the night of the crawl, unlocks the special prices at each location. Each crawler also receives a map that shows the locations of all 15 participating pubs—including The Greene Turtle, Kooper's Tavern, and The Wharf Rat—ensuring they find each venue without having to spend all their doubloons on a GPS.
The crawl is one of the many events hosted by Fell's Point Main Street, an organization dedicated to revitalizing local commercial and historical areas.
