Kappa Sigma’s Alpha Chapter at Emory University Service Day at Dearborn Park

Thanks to the members of Kappa Sigma Alpha for having their service day in Dearborn Park and helping forge a new path. They helped Friends of Dearborn Park begin a path from Dearborn Park Trail to Catherine St/Oldfield Rd. Hopefully, they had so much fun that they’ll be back next semester.  This event was sponsored by Kevin Polite, Solid Source Realty, Inc and HausZwei Homes.

Belvedere Park getting a New Restaurant

Belvedere Park getting a New Restaurant

Gus’s World Famous Fried Chicken, 151016DINE1023the Memphis based chicken chain that entered the Atlanta market in 2015, is planning to open in Decatur later this fall.  Sources at the restaurant confirmed to me this week that they plan to open in Belvedere Plaza in Decatur, Ga at the corner of Memorial and Columbia Drives. This area of Decatur is known as Belvedere Park and is near Meadowbrook Acres. Technically the restaurant is not in the City of Decatur but nonetheless the Belvedere Plaza eatery will be the group’s “Decatur” location.

 

Gus’s will reportedly occupy a 4,400 square foot portion of the former Blockbuster Video, next to Wingstop, on the Columbia Drive end of the center.  READ REMAINING ARTICLE HERE
Belvedere Plaza was built in 1955 and was previously home to a Rich’s department store, Haverty’s Furniture, Rhodes Furniture, Colonial Food Store, Kroger, Lane Rexall Drugs, F. W. Woolworth and W. T. Grant, among other tenants. [The folks at Next Stop Decatur put together a cool Belvedere Plaza historical blog Belvedere Plaza Blogspot
