Athens' inspiration behind REM album title faces closure

Posted: Updated:
ATHENS, Ga. -

An Athens landmark made famous by legendary band REM is up for sale.

Weaver D's Delicious Fine Foods may close its doors after more than a quarter-century in Athens.

REM put the soul food spot on the map by naming their album Automatic for the People after owner Dexter Weaver's inspired motto.

Weaver say the restaurant may close if there's no buyer.

REM fans have traveled from around the world to visit the famed restaurant.
