Playboy magazine founder Hugh Hefner, 74, will have a street named after him in Chicago, where his hedonism empire all began. City alderman approved “Hugh Hefner Way” on Tuesday. In San Francisco, city officials voted to name a playground for its homegrown baseball hero Joe DiMaggio, despite protests from the late Yankee Clipper’s attorney Morris Engelberg. He wanted the airport or the Bay Bridge named for DiMaggio.
