Nightlife Agenda Pick of the Week
Saturday, Jan. 6
Almost 20 years after Elvis Presley (allegedly) died on a Graceland toilet, local bars and clubs are still throwing over-the-top birthday parties in the King's honor. Jumpsuited Fat Elvises line up for costume contests, bands blast "All Shook Up" and everyone gets to say, "Thanka. Thanka vurry much" in a bad southern drawl. The annual celebration at Dr. Dremo's Taphouse includes Elvis karaoke, professional impersonators, a costume contest, a special menu (peanut butter-and-'nana sandwiches! Burnt bacon and mustard!) and the unveiling of the tasty Imperial Graceland Stout, specially brewed for the bar by the Shenandoah Brewing Company. Admission is free for anyone dressed like Elvis, no matter which era. Over at Chick Hall's, Surfin' With the King is a rockin' birthday luau with the excellent local band the Hula Monsters, who will no doubt perform classics like "Rock-a-Hula" and "Blue Hawaii." Again, there's a costume contest (male and female categories) with cash and prizes. Chick's also offers a trivia contest, so study up.
Looking for more ideas for weekend fun? The Nightlife Agenda column suggests DJ nights, live music and happy hours every Thursday.
