Save Weaver D's

Athens institution Weaver D's is in danger of closing. The restaurant, which inspired REM's album title Automatic for the People, has been in the same location for 26 years, but owner Dexter Weaver is behind on his bills by two months and will have to shutter the space if he can't make payments. Ever since he announced his troubles on Facebook, however, the line at the restaurant has been out the door, and Weaver has high hopes that the iconic soul food spot will be saved. [11Alive]
