Hard time of the year - but Elvis will save the day

Posted at 4:35 PM on September 12, 2008 by Euan Kerr

It always seemed to me that this is the hardest part of the year. Labor Day is past and school is back in session: we are all meant to be serious again after the frivolities of summer. I keep trying to sneak out to see films, but real life keeps thrusting its face forward.

Thus I missed two chances to see "Burn After Reading" already this week and I am now unsure when I'll get to it because the weekend is booked up. Such are the challenges of modern life.

But if frivolity is your bag, check out the Parkway in Minneapolis. Not only is there an Elvis Presley Festival over the next four weekends, showing "Jailhouse Rock," "Viva Las Vegas," "GI Blues," "Love Me Tender," and Kid Creole," but tonight and on the 27th there is an Elvis Tribute Open Stage where anyone can get up and present their very best Elvis.
