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. These are the best ways to party on New Year's Eve in Dallas-Fort Worth. Whether you had a good or bad year in 2016, the dawn of 2017 brings the promise of a fresh start. End the year with a bang by taking in one of the best New Year's Eve events in Dallas-Fort Worth, most of which encompass more than just drinking, dancing, and counting down until midnight.

2. Days are numbered for this Greenville Avenue chef's restaurant. Greenville Avenue suffered another restaurant loss with the closure of Clark Food & Wine, the chef-driven bistro from Randall and Courtney Warder. The last day of operation was December 27, which means no more smoked catfish dip with Saltines.

3. The 16 best-dressed Dallasites of 2016 impressed more than the rest. As 2016 draws to a close, we are reflecting on Dallas' most exclusive social events and the outfits that are forever embedded in our minds — from traditional to anything but. These best-dressed Dallasites stole the show before it started and had us talking long after it was over.  

4. These Dallas-Fort Worth bars are open for you on Christmas Day 2016. This list doesn't even need an introduction. It's the holidays. Many people confined together in small rooms. People you haven't seen in a while. People you deliberately moved away from. We're restraining ourselves from typing these words in all caps: You need a drink.

5. This is how much a starter home will cost you in Dallas. As real estate prices rise across the United States, buying a home has become more competitive than ever, and as more inventory moves off the market, historically affordable markets have become slightly less affordable. In certain areas, starter homes in particular are becoming non-existent, but in Texas, starter home prices are rising despite regular inventory levels.
