Editor’s note: Another week has come and gone, and there’s a lot we all probably missed. But we’re looking out for you, kid. Here are the most popular stories from this past week:

1. This is how long millennials have to save to afford a home in Dallas. Buying a home in Dallas is increasingly challenging. There aren't many starter homes available, and even if there were, a new report says millennials wouldn't be able to snag them. The Dallas metro area lines up with the national trend: A lot of young people want to buy a place, but they can't afford to right now, and they may not be able to any time soon.

2. Dallas film blogger dies in car crash while crossing busy street. Gary Murray, a Dallas film writer and president of the North Texas Film Critics Association, was killed in a car crash on April 23. Murray, who was 53, died doing what he loved most: covering the art of film.

3. Dallas-Fort Worth airline crashes as one of the nation's worst. Dallas-Fort Worth's airports certainly get a lot of love, but that admiration doesn't always extend to the airlines flying in and out of their gates. Fort Worth-based American Airlines was recently named one of the worst overall airlines for 2016.

4. Meet the top 8 Dallas sommeliers who give us something to drink about. We're getting ready for the 2016 CultureMap Tastemaker Awards, and our latest check-in features the city's best sommeliers. These are the folks to whom we turn when we're seeking advice on what to sip. They guide us through bubbles, whites, reds, and rosés. 

5. Asian pastry shop makes Texas debut next to Dallas' favorite dollar store. An international bakery chain founded in Taiwan is coming to Texas. Called 85°C Bakery, it will open in the Carrollton Town Center at President George Bush Turnpike and Old Denton Road, where Japanese dollar store Daiso is.
