Each week, The AJC will give you a recap of the most talked about stories in Gwinnett County, based on unscientific data like Facebook shares and comments, Twitter activity and general community hubbub. Read on (and click on the bolded hyperlinks) to stay in the know – and to make sure you have something to talk about with your friends.

*We learned this week that Gwinnettians love the idea of a good Easter egg hunt – and even better if it's an Easter egg hunt IN THE DARK.

*The investigation into the fire that killed a Gwinnett woman and her two daughters continues.

*Gwinnett County commissioners voted to give themselves a 51 percent raise. Reviews were…mixed.

*Restaurant news (good, bad and gross) was all the rage: La Madeleine announced the opening date for its new Mall of Georgia location; Burger 21 plans to make a home in Snellville; one of the county's Tilted Kilt locations failed a health inspection; and a local Chick-fil-A inspired a national trend with its "cellphone coops."

*On March 1, a now-former Mill Creek High School teacher was arrested and charged with sexual assault, accused of having an inappropriate relationship with a 17-year-old student.

*Emotions were high when a Papa John's delivery man was shot and killed at a Lawrenceville-area apartment complex. Two suspects – including a 14-year-old boy – were later charged in his slaying.

*Locals got revved up (both happily and angrily) about the possibility of a new "Kroger Marketplace" store near Lawrenceville….and its subsequent denial by the planning commission.

*And finally…who knew Gwinnett had so many Parrotheads? Jimmy Buffett and the Coral Reefer Band are returning to Infinite Energy Center (formerly the Arena at Gwinnett Center) later this year.
