It’s an origin story
The occasion was a somber one. A group of friends had gathered in an Atlanta bar to toast the memory of one of their comrades who had tragically died earlier that same day. As the drinks flowed, a plan was hatched to memorialize their friend by having an Atlanta street named after him. Despite the fact that the city didn’t think their comrade was exactly street name worthy, the friends persisted and ultimately succeeded beyond anything they could have imagined. As you’ll see in this week’s Stories of Atlanta.
