Annual Luncheon Celebrates Christmas, USA

By |

Roger Staubach showed up, laughing in the chow line with John Wiley Price. Matt Nordgren was there too, talking about how “new story lines” are being developed just now for future episodes of Most Eligible Dallas. Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst also turned out, scoffing at the notion that Craig James’ entry into the U.S. Senate race will make it impossible for Dewhurst to win the GOP nomination without a runoff.

They were among the 400-plus guests at Cowboys Stadium for today’s Gentlemen’s Luncheon, an annual holiday party hosted by Dallas businessmen Barry Andrews and Alan White. As usual, the luncheon was a gathering of DFW’s sports and business power elite: Jones and Summerall and Moose and Emmitt; Washburne and Huffines and Francis and Simmons  — the Al Biernat crowd (Al was there, too). Also as usual, the entertainment (by C&W singer Lee Greenwood) focused on Christmas songs, then sent everyone home with a big, patriotic (God Bless the USA) bang.
