Welcome to Twitter in Focus where media comes to die! Today’s contestant is Derek Waters, creator of Drunk History. Let’s see what he’s tweeting.
Dave Grohl was on the show? I must’ve missed that one.
November 29th: “It’s all cause of you Gags. Thank You!”
End of the season? Must be plenty of tweets after this.
January 15th: “Couldn’t be more excited and thankful to be doing this show again. Thanks to everyone who made it happen. ”
Ah, he’s like me. If he didn’t have something to promote, he probably wouldn’t be on Twitter at all.
February 10th: “Can’t wait! Get your tix below. Thank you
@Chriswitaske My next guest for @SoYouDoComedy is the creator and host of @drunkhistory Derek Waters! Mon, Feb 27th @ucbtla Tix: http://bit.ly/2kNeLpN ”
I’m surprised Drunk History is a West Coast show. Felt more like it was a New York thing. Oh, well, guess that’s were all the guests are.
Hmm, Derek must be too busy to tweet.
March 15th: “Great Scot-land! @ Edinburgh Castle https://www.instagram.com/p/BRq3TeuDSON/ ”
That’s a nice castle.
Okay, let’s rate Derek’s Tweets. Not much here. He’s more of a retweeter than a tweeter. I give Derek a 5 for Mustness, a 7 for Insanity and a 9 for Style. That’s an overall score of 7. Follow Derek and watch Drunk History. It’s pretty funny.

My brother and I were catching some Pokemon and we had to pick up his girlfriend at the airport. They were nice enough to invite me along for dinner. Pasta was a must, so Tre Famiglia Ristorante in Haddonfield was chosen. I haven’t had tremendous success with the restaurants there. I think they tend to be overblown, but this one was certainly not.
I have a high bar for Italian food and this place nailed it. First up, the Misto Salad. This was hands down the best house salad I’ve ever had. Perfect mix of balsamic dressing with Spring Mix, cucumber, celery and tomato. Celery is such a rarity in restaurants. It was delicious. Little bit of cheese and some croutons too. Maybe I was just hungry, but I was just blown away by this salad.
One of the appetizers was a sausage and fig mix. Sweetness mixed with pork? OMG, yes. Delicious. Could’ve been a desert.
Fresh bread, by the way, and dipping oil with a little pesto and salt. Nice!
My Iced tea? Perfect and the waiters kept bringing them just how I like it.
Finally, my default entree at all Italian places is Chicken Parm. I just love it. Tre flattened it out, nice and tender and allowed me to substitute fries, which were also amazing. I devoured it. I can’t find a thing wrong with the place. Maybe it was a little loud, but that’s about it. You gotta go.
I give Tre Famiglia Ristorante 9.5 out of 10 keggers. No thanks, bros.
