Dean Martin Gets Street Honour
Late entertainer Dean Martin has received a huge honour from his beloved Las Vegas, with a street named after him.
The THAT'S AMORE singer - a member of the RAT PACK alongside OCEAN'S ELEVEN co-stars Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr, Peter Lawford and JOEY BISHOP - was the subject of discussion among Clark County commissioners on Wednesday (20APR05), when they decided to rename part of Industrial Road as Dean Martin Drive.
A developer of a high-rise condominium project campaigned for the name change, arguing that the new title would look better on letterheads for hotels, properties and business.
