Please don't rename George Street!
George Street in St. John's is a remarkable institution; it seems to have the highest concentration of bars per footage and population that I have ever seen.
St. John's is apparently planning to rename several streets to honour the Olympic champion curling rink of Brad Gushue.
OK - George Street is not under threat.
Deputy Mayor Dennis O'Keefe said Monday a road in St. John's will be renamed Gold Medal Drive.
Several streets branching from the drive will be named after each of the curlers _ Gushue, Mark Nichols, Russ Howard, Jamie Korab and Mike Adam, as well as their coach Toby MacDonald.
I think it would be fun to wander on streets locally named Werenich Ave, Darte/Bodogh Alley, Howard Blvd.
