A cowboy is an animal herder who tends cattle on ranches in North America, traditionally on horseback, and often performs a multitude of other ranch-related tasks. The historic American cowboy of the late 19th century arose from the vaquero traditions of northern Mexico and became a figure of special significance and legend. A subtype, called a wrangler, specifically tends the horses used to work cattle. In addition to ranch work, some cowboys work for or participate in rodeos.

  • the $64,000 nfl rookie dinner

    … actually surprised they sell it at Del Frisco’s for only $3,495, since a bottle at retail (if you can even find one) is about $2,500. Someone knew what they were doing with this one. Final score: Snore, guys! I get that you’re eating steak and I do love a Cab/steak pairing, but all Napa Cabs? With those prices they could’ve gotten some pretty awesome Brunellos or even Rhone reds.

  • Dispatches from the Wine Cowgirl: Cliff Creek

    …, enjoy is a word I heard a lot of during my visit. Joe Dobbes has been Cliff Creek’s winemaker since 2003. “It was really serendipity.” Ruth tells me. “We had talked to several wine makers but by chance read an article about Joe striking out on his own.
