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. Ambitious party bar from Houston flees its Dallas roost. After a somewhat tumultuous tenure, Little Woodrow's, the Houston import, is closing its branch in Dallas. Owner Danny Evans confirmed that the closure would be effective immediately.

2. New cooking school in Oak Cliff courts Dallas’ knife-wielding foodies. A new concept opening in North Oak Cliff promises to bring something totally fresh. Called Garnish Kitchen, it will be a chef-run cooking school with a small eatery on the side, opening in the space on Davis Street that was previously the short-lived wine bar Bouchon 1314.

3. Dallas sports-bar chain calls game over for Addison restaurant. They say it gets easier with repetition, so maybe this one won't hurt: Sports bar chain Humperdinks closed its location in Addison, after 30 years in the restaurant-friendly town. The restaurant had been at its address at 3820 Belt Line Rd. since 1996.

4. New nonstop service from Dallas-Fort Worth to Kaua'i makes island getaway a breeze. American Airlines has launched a winter seasonal nonstop route from Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport to Kaua'i, Hawaii, just in time for whale watching season.

5. Sleek bachelor pad in Dallas' hottest high-rise hits the market. Those in the market for a high-rise home should head over to unit 1006, at the prestigious 1999 McKinney building. Ideally situated between between Uptown, Victory Park, and the Harwood District, there's pretty much no better location to land if your plans include living high in the Dallas sky.
