Elvis Fest

When: Sat., Jan. 8, 5 p.m. 2011

The 11th annual Elvis Fest celebrates what would’ve been Elvis Presley’s 76th birthday, with tribute artists (aka “impersonators”), karaoke, and a look-alike contest where the most persuasive Elvis wins a trip to Las Vegas. Legendary DJ Dick Biondi, now with oldies station 94.7 WLS-FM, will broadcast live from 5 till 8 PM, and the venue will provide the obligatory free buffet of grilled peanut butter and banana sandwiches.

Price: $5 suggested donation
