And anyone who walks into Rio Bravo – filled to the brim with everything cowboy & Indian - is the beneficiary of Randy’s passion. There are vintage Navajo rugs, heaps of cowboy hats (Ralph Lauren owns one and Randy blocks hats for film industry folks), nifty spurs and belt buckles, sensational jewelry, paintings, handmade boots, saddles, and my personal favorite, chaps - handsome tooled leather chaps that would make you run out and buy a magnificent horse so that you could both strut your stuff.
