Editor's note: A lot happened this week, so here's your chance to get caught up. Read on for the week's most popular headlines.

1. Dallas suburb with lovely lakefront drifts onto Money's Best Places to Live 2020. According to Money magazine, if you want to live the good life in North Texas, you should head to Rockwall. The northeast Dallas suburb made it into the top five in Money's list of Best Places to Live in America 2020. In rankings released September 22, Rockwall was No. 4. 

2. Downtown Dallas will turn Lights Out to save migrating birds' lives. Downtown Dallas and its high-rise buildings have joined in the heroic fight to save the lives of migrating birds. The skyline is being dimmed for 10 days — part of an international initiative called Lights Out Texas, to protect birds as they migrate across the U.S. Light pollution kills birds that are migrating across the state every spring and fall.

3. New Plano restaurant Bavette specializes in rare cut of sirloin steak. A steaky restaurant newly opened in Plano spotlights a rare cut of meat. Called Bavette Grill, it opened in late July at Granite Park in Plano, at 8100 Dallas Pkwy., #115 near Highway 121 and the Dallas North Tollway, in a space that was once home to a Kent Rathbun restaurant called Hickory, and before that, Zea Woodfire Grill.

4. Mark Cuban-approved workout stretches into new Plano location. Two years after opening their first location of Rise Nation, at Knox Heights in Dallas, Tiffany and Mark Stevenson are debuting a second. The climbing cardio studio is opening a new location at 7300 Lone Star Dr., suite C-103, in The Shops at Legacy on October 5, with Mark Cuban as a partner.

5. Uber puts up most of its office space in Deep Ellum building for rent. In not-so-great news for Deep Ellum, Uber Technologies is leasing out most of its office space inside the Epic building at the corner of Pacific Avenue and Good Latimer Freeway. The company put 117,000 square feet of space on the sublease market, which is nearly all of its space with the exception of two floors, where a few hundred employees moved in early 2020.
