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. 4 Dallas-Fort Worth entrepreneurs rank among Forbes' richest self-made women for 2020. Eight female entrepreneurs from Texas appear on Forbes' new list of America's Richest Self-Made Women, and four are from Dallas-Fort Worth. To be in the elite club, women had to garner wealth on their own, rather than by inheriting or winning it.

2. The 7 best and brightest drive-thru holiday light displays in Dallas-Fort Worth. Like the Grinch that it is, coronavirus has stolen many things from us — but it can't dampen our holiday spirit. When it comes to experiencing holiday lights, things are looking merrier and brighter than ever in 2020, thanks to the number of drive-thru Christmas light events that are decking pathways around Dallas-Fort Worth this year.

3. Fort Worth's new Kimpton Hotel will host exciting Italian restaurant. The Kimpton Harper Hotel in downtown Fort Worth won't open until spring 2021, but there's exciting news regarding two new eateries that will reside inside. Refinery 714 will be a penthouse bar and lounge, and Il Modo will be a vibrant bustling restaurant and bar serving Italian fare with a modern sensibility.

4. With coronavirus spiking, Dallas-Fort Worth is urged to double down. COVID-19 cases have been rising dramatically in Fort Worth, in Texas, and across the country, prompting warnings from lawmakers and health officials to double back down on anti-virus practices. By November 18, Fort Worth was seeing an alarming increase in the number of positive cases — and that included Mayor Betsy Price and her husband.

5. Fort Worth's newest music venue lifts the curtain in Near Southside. Exciting news for Fort Worth's concert scene: Tulips FTW, the city's newest local music venue, finally opened its doors on Friday, November 20. After pushing back its planned August grand opening, Tulips makes its debut with two weeks of opening events.
