This Tuesday, February 21 from 9pm till 11pm, the Axemen are proud to welcome David Marting to Time Out Sports Grill. David, who is the author of a true Rugby Players Cookbook will be making a Jacksonville visit to host a book signing and of course enjoy a few cold beers with fellow Ruggers.

“The Hooligan’s Table, The Rugby Player’s Cookbook” collects recipes from rugby players, friends, fans and pubs that rugby teams call home. There are over 80 recipes from from around the world. Chapters include: In the Scrum – soups and stews; Hands in the Ruck – burgers and sandwiches; Sin Bin – desserts and Try Line – breakfast and cocktails.

Written by David Martin, a veteran rugby player with the New York Rugby Club’s Gentlemen of New York, he started playing the Florida State but also played for the Miami Tridents. He now plays for old boys sides like Mystic River, the Wild Geese and the Washington Area Rugby Touring Side (WARTS). He also has contributed to Rugby Magazine for many years and writes for travel magazines and television news.

Time Out, along with Budweiser and North Florida Sales will be making sure there are plenty of specially priced beverages to get everyone enjoying the atmosphere.

Long term Axemen official, Gary Crumley, who is a bit of cook himself, has contributed two recipes to the book.
Axemen Coach Spinner Howland said, “Finally a cookbook that is all about the food and nothing about the foo-foo. I cook to eat my meals, not put them in an art gallery.”
