Elvis' 75th Birthday

My brother lives in Memphis, so it's pretty difficult for him, and by extension, us, to avoid all things Elvis.

For Christmas, I bought him and his girlfriend some "dates" and this weekend they'll be heading to Elvis Night at the Mississippi River Kings hockey game. (Can't wait for the pictures.)

I was reading through a slideshow on about places to celebrate the King's birthday and was surprised that Milwaukee made the list because of a celebration at the Harley-Davidson Museum.

from the site: Milwaukee

From Jan. 7-31, the Harley-Davidson Museum in Milwaukee, Wisconsin is celebrating Elvis Presley’s 75th birthday with a special exhibit featuring Elvis’ red and white 1956 Model KH Harley-Davidson motorcycle and photos taken during Presley’s 1968"Comeback" television special.

Throughout the month, visitors are invited to leave a birthday message for Presley, and anyone sporting Elvis-style sideburns and glasses will get a discount on museum admission. The museum’s Motor Bar & Restaurant will also be serving some of Presley’s favorite dishes, including peanut butter and banana sandwiches.

Check out the whole slide show here.
