Street renamed for Boggs

A stretch of Madison Avenue in Midtown Memphis will be renamed for the late Thomas Boggs Wednesday.

The Huey's CEO was known as a great businessman and benefactor and one of the city's most beloved personalities.

Boggs was a partner in several other local restaurants, and was also a drummer in several Memphis bands, including The Box Tops, in the 1960's.

The stretch of Madison between Rembert and Barksdale, right near Huey's Midtown, will be dedicated to Boggs, who died last May at the age of 63.
