Even though Tony Romo celebrated Cinco de Mayo with his bros, he did make a little time for gal pal Candice Crawford.

The Cowboys quarterback dined at Javier’s with friends including sports entrepreneur Kirby Schlegel, attorney Steve Stodghill and former ballplayer Matt Nordgren (briefly linked to The Hills star Audrina Patridge).

When the guys got up from the table to take their party to the patio, Candice appeared and joined the group for a half-hour.

The group’s primo dinner table was handed off to Forbes 400 oilman turned film producer Tim Headington.

Phil Collins’ Dallas pal
The fact that Dallas Historical Society life trustee Lindalyn Adams and pop star [lastfm]Phil Collins [/lastfm]are close friends sounds like the setup for a punch line. But the friendship is no joke – they’re tight. They’ll be together when Phil speaks about his Alamo collection Monday at Fair Park’s Hall of State.

When Lindalyn and her husband, Reuben, first met him in 1982 at Caneel Bay in the Virgin Islands, Phil explained that he was the drummer for [lastfm]Genesis[/lastfm].

Thinking it was a religious organization, Lindalyn replied, “Our son is with Campus Crusade for Christ.”

About-towners
Mayor Tom Leppert dropped in on political pro Carol Reed‘s birthday dinner at Bailey’s Prime Plus on Park Lane.

At Bailey’s in Fort Worth, former Top Chef darling Casey Thompson popped in for lunch. She’s now executive chef at Brownstone, located across the street.

Julia Roberts‘ ex, Benjamin Bratt, was at the Rosewood Mansion on Turtle Creek with his brother, Peter, to promote their indie film La Mission.

And it was ’70s flashback time at the Mansion when performers for the Dallas Summer Musicals 2010 Curtain Call Gala checked in: [lastfm]David Cassidy[/lastfm], Cathy Rigby, Ben Vereen, Tom Wopat and Mitzi Gaynor.

To keep things balanced, Courtney Love stayed at the Mansion while performing at Edgefest with her band, Hole.

Not surprisingly, Courtney is a heavy smoker.
