A press release informs us that Elvis’s death left a “gaping” (ahem) void in the entertainment industry; as such, Needham’s Blue on Highland will host a feast called Eat Like a King on August 16 to honor his death. At last: You, too, can resemble a past-your-prime, leisure-suited rock star! There will also be an Elvis impersonator.

Expect the King’s favorite dishes (we’re hoping banana and bacon sandwiches will be served), themed cocktails, and the swingin’ tunes of professional Elvis impersonator Michael Viselli. The evening begins at 6:30 p.m. And to think, the last time we saw Elvis was on the pages of the National Enquirer.
