RANCHO MIRAGE, Calif., June 8 (UPI) -- "Everybody loves somebody sometime" and a California community loves Dean Martin enough to dedicate a street to him on what would have been his 90th birthday.
Dino finally got a road named after him -- Dean Martin Drive -- in Rancho Mirage, Calif., a celebrity-conscious town where Frank Sinatra, Bob Hope, Dinah Shore and Gerald Ford all have streets named after them, The Riverside (Calif.) Press-Enterprise reported Friday. The street leads into three gated communities.
Dean Martin Drive street signs in Rancho Mirage went up late last year but were officially dedicated Thursday. Martin, dubbed by Playboy as "the coolest man who ever lived," died in 1995.
Martin -- part of the "Rat Pack" of Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr., Joey Bishop and Peter Lawford -- achieved success in a number of entertainment venues, including film, television and the Las Vegas stage.
