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. Good 2 Go Taco owners Jeana Johnson and Colleen O'Hare snap up Watel's space. It didn't take long for the space that held the recently closed Watel's — and, before it, York Street — to find new occupants. Chefs Jeana Johnson and Colleen O'Hare plan to open a new restaurant there in March.
2. UNT administration takes the easy way out with Greek life alcohol ban. Staff writer Jonathan Rienstra didn't think very highly of UNT's decision to ban alcohol at all Greek events after one student injured himself while under the influence. "A new university rule aimed to squash underage drinking will not solve the problem. There are already laws on the books, and it still happens," Rienstra opines.
3. The Gem juice bar heads to Preston Center in May. The juice and salad bar that sprouted one year ago on Inwood Road has found a new location in super-hot Preston Center. The Gem is moving on the heels of the recent closure of Duo – All Things Culinary, the high-end kitchen supply shop in which The Gem resided.
4. Bachelor Sean Lowe makes single girls' dreams come true this Valentine's Day at Sfuzzi. Hunky Sean Lowe, star of this season’s The Bachelor on ABC, was at Sfuzzi on the Day of Love for a meet and greet.
5. Lowriders meet high society for blinged-out Phenomenon at Dallas Contemporary. The Dallas Contemporary’s second annual Phenomenon was a soiree on steroids. Conceived and executed by the Chicago-based mixed media artist Dzine, the fundraiser shone a light on a creative subculture of cool cars, fab fashion and classic house music while giving some local talent a chance to show their stuff.
