Though Baltimore's Night of 100 Elvises was celebrating its 20th anniversary, I had never been to it. Many of the years, I was away on travel assignments. Other years . . . I dunno. I thought maybe it would be weird. I didn't realize how much fun it would be! Plus, it benefits Johns Hopkins Children's Hospital. It's held at Lithuanian Hall 851-3 Hollins Street Baltimore, Maryland 21201-1003
There was a shuttle bus that picked up at two places, including right at my publishing empire: Cross Keys. It was meant to be! It also made the night more fun, knowing nobody had to be a designated driver.
Everyone got name tags "Elvis," plus there were about a dozen impersonators . . . including a lady Elvis! Some were classy crooners, one was kind of a weird stripper type. Most did "old/fat" Elvis, but some did the younger rockabilly one. There are three floors of activity; I preferred the basement level, with more intimate seating, its own bar and oysters from Tangier Sound. There was also a buffet with fried chicken, crudites, fried peanut butter sandwiches and banana pudding. Damn, those sandwiches were good! I couldn't believe it. I had to force myself to stop at two halves. After all, I don't want to suffer the same fate as Elvis . . .
The current and several former Baltimore Hons were also in attendance. Everyone was dancing along with "Elvis"!
