Doc Diz resides in Fort Worth, Texas for the past 15 years. When not playing old boys rugby or skiing, he is known for sampling Maker's Mark for its medicinal qualities.

FT.

Kind of fitting where we were at….old man Campesi started his restaurant back in the 50’s, when Eye-Talian […]
FORT WORTH, TX – It’s Super Duper Bowl time again, when America gets to watch some football squeezed in between commercials, while chowing down on the food that made Chris Christie the man that he is. I’m thinking that he’s a shoe-in to represent a large [ahem] constituency that have not had one of their […]
