Elvis sighting

Las Vegas Review Journal featured a story of Elvis's first appearance in Las Vegas in 1956. The story started on the front page: Elvis played to a room of an older crowd who did not know who Elvis was and he wasn't received very well .  Colonel Tom salvaged the show the next week by holding an afternoon concert for teens, charging $1 for admission and a free coke. Colonel Tom was in the lobby selling Elvis photos for 25 cents. The show was a smash!

Elvis sighting at dinner

My mom, Janet, was at dinner with a friend and she sent me this picture because she knows Elvis is my favorite. This was taken at a restaurant called Grady's that is located in Roseville, Michigan. My name is Rachelle and I'm from Warren, Michigan. I've been an Elvis fan since I was young, and it really stuck when I watched Lilo and Stitch and asked my mom if I've ever heard of this "Elvis guy". Since then, I've been all about Elvis and I'm always on the lookout for anything related   We even named our dog Presley.

Elvis mentioned in a book and TV Guide

I am currently reading a 2007 novel by Jan Karon titled "Home to Holly Springs".  The book is set in Mississippi.  On page 217, a retired railroad conductor tells another character that Elvis used to travel on his train from time to time and that he once ate 4 BBQ sandwiches and left a $100 bill.

In the Holiday Preview TV Guide, the #1 What's Worth Watching pick is the documentary "Elvis: Are You Lonesome Tonight?" airing on Reelz  on Nov 28.  The article is accompanied by a half-page photo of Elvis standing beside one of his cars (a Rolls-Royce, I believe).
