Looking for a hunka-hunka burnin' fun? The fifth annual Elvis Presley Birthday Bash is offering a hip-rockin' good time and free admission to the Sam Houston Race Park for anyone dressed like the King, so break out the white rhinestone jumpsuit and start wigglin' you might even win $1,000 in the look-alike contest. Between lip curls and pelvic thrusts, Elvis fans can stuff their faces with Graceland's famous peanut-butter-and-banana sandwiches, or just sit back and enjoy dollar beers all day long. Gates open at 5:30 p.m.; contest starts at 8 p.m.
Sat., Jan. 7
