Last night, I attended an intimate dinner party at Hotel Americano, which was hosted by Gemfields, the world's foremost colored gemstone producer. All of the guests were given a choice of entrée between Chilean sea bass or steak. I happened to be sitting next to a fellow Texan, and, as it turned out, we were the only two at the table who ordered a steak. She leaned over and said: "People always get a kick outta how I order a steak. It's the best line from Texas I've got: Knock off the horns and walk it by the fire."
