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. New Uptown Dallas restaurant-bar promises to put the party in brunch. An address on McKinney Avenue that has remained vacant for an inexplicably long spell will soon be home to a restaurant-bar called TBD that promises to take brunch to a whole new level — with sparklers!

2. Virgin chooses designer neighborhood for swanky new Dallas hotel. Virgin Hotels has confirmed it will open a hotel in Dallas, in one of the city’s hottest neighborhoods: the Design District. The property will be located on Hi Line Drive and Turtle Creek Boulevard, and it is expected to open in 2018.

3. Some of the worst places to live in Texas hover around one big city. A new study determined the 10 worst places to live in Texas by analyzing the 238 most populous cities (10,000 and up) in the state. Thankfully, none are in North Texas, but several are near Houston.

4. Roomy loft near Dallas Farmers Market leaves a lot to buyer’s imagination. Lofts tend to feel big because of high ceilings, tall windows and few interior walls dividing up the space. But unit 208 at 2220 Canton St. really is big: 2,296 square feet. And it’s a blank canvas.

5. Midway Hollow traditional provides entree to in-demand Dallas neighborhood. Located in a secluded cul de sac in the heart of Midway Hollow, 9463 Green Terrace Dr. just hit the market. And with a list price of $398,000, it’s not going to be around long. The home is no fixer upper, either. The current owner is a well-known architectural designer, meaning the house is more than move-in ready.
