The Watering Hole


Recommended Posts


Take a drive south on fuller from Plainfield and your bound to find some of the zaniest names streets in Grand Rapids. There is a Calgary Rd. and Edmonton Rd. and an Alberta Rd. There is a Sweet St. a Short St. which is as small as a city block. I can see the nameing meeting for that one

Commissioner: "What shall we call this one?"

Commissioner2: "Well its kind of a short off street"

Commissioner: "Thats it! Short St.!"

For the road with the most goofy names intersecting with it, it has to be Fuller.

Yeah, that neighborhood had some strange street names. I'm still voting for Easy Street. I've always had a meeting like snoogit's in my head, but it sounds more like a Cheech and Chong skit.

None of these are even close to the strangest one I've ever seen. *Caveat* please do not think I'm racist. I didn't name this street I'm only bringing it up in the context of this discussion.

Savannah, Georgia has an actual street named Black Weiner Rd. The first time I saw it on a street map my chin about hit the floor. I was sure someone at the printer had slipped that one in as some sort of joke. So I drove over to see if it was really there, guess what it was. Complete with street signs. Not to mention a church having the poor fate of being located on said road.
