1. Preschool sweethearts crowd-surf and shoot tequila at fanciest frat-party wedding in Dallas. If frat parties had professional event planners, they might look something like Josh and Courtney Katz's wedding. For their big day on November 17, 2018, the bride and groom envisioned throwing “the fanciest frat party of all time.” Event planner Jeffrey Kollinger delivered with countless details reflecting the couple's playful personalities.

2. 2 acclaimed Dallas restaurants make prestigious list by Bon Appetit magazine. Four Texas restaurants, including two from Dallas — Khao Noodle Shop and Petra and the Beast — are basking in the national spotlight. Bon Appétit has included them in its list of America's 50 best new restaurants. The long list is a prelude to the magazine's annual Hot 10 list, which will be released September 17.

3. Revered Dallas restaurant The Grape on Greenville Avenue is closing. One of Dallas' most revered restaurants is closing. According to a release, The Grape, which has been on Greenville Avenue since 1972, will close on October 10. As of September 11, the restaurant is no longer taking dinner reservations. For those who don't have a reservation, they will have limited first-come first-serve walk-in opportunities.

4. Dallas-Fort Worth dethrones NYC as the nation's No. 1 spot for new apartments. It’s not all in your head.

RentCafe estimates 22,196 new apartments will be built in the Dallas-Fort Worth metro area by the end of 2019 — by far the highest number in the country.

5. East Coast-style Dallas restaurant heats up intersection in Lakewood. The Lakewood intersection of Mockingbird Lane and Abrams Road gets a fancy new restaurant with the opening of Hudson House Restaurant & Raw Bar, opening in what used to be an IHOP. This is the third outpost of this brand, which has become a neighborhood favorite both in Highland Park and Addison.
