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. Where to eat in Dallas right now: 10 hot restaurants for November. As part of our Tastes of the Season series, we focus this chapter of "Where to Eat" on restaurants that have earned a reputation for serving local, seasonal fare. Hats off to these 10 restaurants that go the extra distance to find goods in their own backyard.

2. Lululemon caves and writes Family Place a fat check. A week after disavowing Partners Card, Lululemon Athletica has written a $10,000 check to the Family Place, a Dallas charity that supports battered women and children. The NorthPark Center store ended up in the middle of a social media firestorm when it displayed an odd message in its store window in late October.

3. Celebrity-filled Black Tie Dinner goes big at 32nd annual LGBT-supportive gala. More than 3,000 beautiful people filled the Sheraton Dallas hotel for a celebrity-heavy program promoting human rights. Among the star speakers and performers: Cheyenne Jackson, State Sen. Wendy Davis, Fran Drescher, Dustin Lance Black and Patti LaBelle.

4. Local children's charity rejects donation from tattooed moms group. Apparently, not everyone is qualified to write a check to the Children's Advocacy Center for Denton County. The child abuse charity is facing criticism after it rejected a $3,000 donation from the Tattooed Hippie Pirate Mommas, a North Texas group dedicated to celebrating ink and motherhood.

5. TruFire cousin Mash'd pours hillbilly moonshine and queso in Frisco. Like a hillbilly cousin of TruFire Kitchen & Bar, the new Mash'd – a restaurant-sports bar that opened November 7 in Frisco – is missing something. Namely, the letter E. Mash'd may not spell so good, but it knows its moonshine, and its better-than-the-usual-sports-bar food will be made from scratch.
