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. Get an early ride on the new DART Bishop Arts trolley extension. The Dallas Streetcar — the new trolley running from downtown Dallas to Bishop Arts — is about to hit another milestone. On Monday, August 29, the service will officially open two new stops that represent phase two of the route, and it will also step up the frequency.

2. Even scantily clad servers couldn't make it happen for this Dallas restaurant. Dallas' male version of Hooters, called Tallywackers, has closed, although the restaurant claims that it's moving and not shutting down.

3. Dallas restaurateur lists Lakewood entertaining compound for $2 million. If you’ve ever dreamed of owning a restaurant, perhaps living in this house will get you one step closer. Prolific Dallas restaurateur Alberto Lombardi — he owns such hot spots as Toulouse, Taverna, and Bistro 31 — and his wife, Vivian, are selling their home at 6855 Lakewood Blvd.

4. Political-as-ever Dixie Chicks rock the house in Dallas. You couldn't avoid the subtle and not-so-subtle political statements during the group's August 5 concert at Gexa Energy Pavilion, their first appearance in Dallas since a 2006 concert at American Airlines Center.

5. Where to eat in Dallas right now: 10 top restaurants for kitchen action. This summer, the theme is chefs on the move, which we tally up in this edition of where to eat.
