1. Chicken and Champagne restaurant at Dallas' West Village is closing. Sad news for fans of fried chicken, Champagne, and any combination thereof: Max's Wine Dive closed its location at Dallas' West Village, effective immediately. 

2. Bill and Hillary Clinton come to Dallas-Fort Worth for special public appearance. In a rare and as yet singular event, former Secretary of State and Senator Hillary Clinton will make a joint appearance with her husband, former President Bill Clinton, at the newly opened The Pavilion at the Music Factory in Irving.

3. Downtown Dallas bar Green Door grabs enviable patio for new sibling. An ultra-cool space on the eastern edge of downtown Dallas gets a second life thanks to Harwood Tavern, a new restaurant and bar opening at 333 S. Harwood St., in what was ever-so-briefly the upscale Mexican restaurant Agave Azul.

4. 3 best private high schools in Texas are right here in Dallas. A new ranking puts St. Mark’s School of Texas in Dallas at the head of its class — No. 1 among private high schools across the Lone Star State. Two other Dallas schools take the second and third spots. 

5. 5 locals The Dallas Morning News should interview for Leslie Brenner job. Leslie Brenner, the restaurant critic at The Dallas Morning News, is resigning to take a job with Rebees, the Dallas restaurant company launched by developer Tristan Simon. Her last day is September 8.
