ALBANY, GA (WALB) - An Albany businessman is turning his restaurant into an inaugural celebration venue Tuesday.
Gordon Hall owns and operates Shabazz Fish and Chicken in East Albany. Tuesday, he's offering special inauguration meal deals, and bringing in a big screen television so customers can watch Obama being sworn in as President.
Hall said, "It means a great deal to me. It's the largest thing, perhaps, that could happen in my life, as far as political events to take place."
The celebration will take place from 11-4 Tuesday at Shabazz.
