Last week the newly opened Korean fried chicken restaurant Bonchon announced that it would temporarily close to give management time to hire and retrain new staff. Bonchon was barely a week old by that point but was already so popular that the kitchen and waitstaff couldn't keep up with the demand. As of this week they're back open, with specials on mimosas, bloody marys and beer flights all day. That's as close to a Christmas miracle as some of us could ask for.

Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
