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.

Frank Sinatra Drive is near the new Dean Martin Drive.
