WHO: Chris Ever

WHY: Featured guest of the 1995 Rolex National Intercollegiate Indoor Tennis Tournament at the Brookhaven Country Club

WHAT: Dallas is not new to this tennis star, who competed in the Virginia Slims matches here for several years and also made frequent trips to see her younger sister, Clare, a former SMU tennis champ. According to Clare, Chris “absolutely loves Dallas.” This time the grown-up sisters checked into The Crescent Hotel.

WHO: Henry Winkler

WHY: To make a guest appearance at the “Choices” luncheon benefiting the Jewish Federation of Greater Dallas at the Grand Kempinski

PICKS: Happy days were here again when Winkler visited The Mustangs at Williams Square in Las Colinas. “When you see it, it makes you smile,” he said about the horse and water sculpture. “Horse riding is where I got the ’Whoa!’ [for the Fomz]” he explained.

WHO: Joan Collins

WHY: To sign her latest book, Health, Youth And Happiness: My Secrets, at Taylors Bookstore

PICKS: The former “Dynasty” star loves our skyline. “Every time I come back I think how there are the most beautiful buildings here.” Maybe she should have had a role in “Dallas” instead. “The people [here] are respectful,” notes Joan.

WHO: Kim Alexis

WHY: On a national tour to promote CitriMax, an all-natural dietary weight-loss aid

PICKS: Alexis commended captain Charles Wyman at The Fairmont Hotel’s Pyramid Room restaurant for his courteous, chivalrous manner. He recommended the tomato basil soup and the chicken Caesar salad, both “nice and light.” “He used to be a model,” confides Kim.
