We were married in 1967. After that, when my ex-Navy buddies dropped by for a visit and we took them out on the town we always tried to take them to Polaris Lounge, which was a rotating restaurant on top to the Regency Hotel, high up and amazing view of Atlanta and the Witz End*, *Bring Money. On 5th Street in Atlanta.
The Witz End* (*Bring Money) was owned by Nancy and Phil Erickson. Always the how was done by a crew of pantomime players called the “Merry Mutes.” Early on young talented Dick Vandyke was part of he Merry Mutes. Almost every time we were there, one very funny and talented young lady came out wearing a construction worker helmet . She sung “They Are Tearing Up Peachtree Street Again!” with her helmet tilted and an invisible “air” jack hammer tear up a make-believe street. It was a riot.
I was reminded of “They Are Tearing Up Peachtree Street” again when we went to Wellstar Kennesone Hospital. They have torn down another old section and are replacing it with another tower.
Always removing and adding.
