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. East Dallas' favorite gourmet taqueria bids hasta luego. East Dallas' Good 2 Go Taco, who pioneered the gourmet taqueria concept in Dallas, closed this week. After more than seven years, owners Jeana Johnson and Colleen O'Hare decided that, with the advent of 2017, they were ready to move on to something new.

2. This East Dallas midcentury is a rare find at under $400,000. Midcentury aficionados on a budget need look no further than 10509 Evangeline Way. Located in East Dallas' up-and-coming Lochwood neighborhood, this three-bedroom, two-bath, 1,740-square-foot home looks as though it’s fresh out of a time capsule. And priced at just $395,000, it clocks in at a reasonable $227 per square foot.

3. Bawdy pizzeria and beer garden captures prized Deep Ellum location. A new pizzeria and bar from Arizona has bagged a prime location in Deep Ellum, on a strip of Good Latimer that's experiencing major change. Called Bottled Blond, the restaurant is going into the former Allied Printing building at 501 Good Latimer Expy. 

4. Austin coffeehouse transports old-timey flair to quaint downtown Frisco. Dallas has a history of liking coffee from Austin, and it's about to get another fix: Austin roaster Summer Moon will open its first Dallas-area coffee shop in the busy-busy suburb of Frisco.

5. Dallas loses a good brunch with closure of craft beer bar. A great bar on Henderson Avenue has called it quits: Vickery Park closed on January 1 after 11 years of operation. Owner Miles Zuniga says it was time to move on, and he is grateful for the long tenure he had.
