Business Boom For NVR — Reston-based home builder NVR announced it had second-quarter net income of $68.2 million, or $15.17 per share.

New Rules for Bar Crawls — Bar crawls in Arlington County may be changing after the Arlington County Board approved new event regulations at its meeting on Saturday. The new regulations will include fees charged to the organizers to recoup the cost of extra police and community resources required to deal with the nearly 5,000 people estimated to attend some of the crawls. The change comes, in part, after a Reston woman stripped naked at the police station after a St. Patrick’s Day crawl this year. [ARLnow.com]
