Elvis week 2017 planning!.

Thu Dec 22, 2016 10:24 pm

Hi there!! :D :D :D.

Next coming Elvis week 2017, will be probably the last major Elvis Anniversary :cry:. The 50th Anniversary will be great too but that is too far away! :wink:. Because of this I´ll be there in Memphis from 11th to 17th, August 2017 8).

Planning to do many things: Tupelo, Memphis, Graceland and attend all the great activities that week (screenings, meetings, collectors shows, auctions etc) done by EPE.. I´ve already made a reservation for a hotel but not yet for the flight. I did it because I think there won´t be problem to book a flight but to get a decent hotel is getting difficult..... :shock:

Image

Could we do any sort of FECC members (guys & gals) meeting in Memphis?. I mean have a drink or two or even a dinner?. Looking forward to meet you all. Please post on here who would be interested on being part of this cool meeting ::rocks. Bye for now :smt006.

P.S: The Doc is also invited! :smt005.

I'm arriving on the 12th and leaving on the 17th. Getting together for a beer sounds great! I suggest Boscos at 2120 Madison Avenue • Memphis, TN 38104 (a few blocks from Sun Studio). Boscos is a micro-brewery, which means European style beer, rather than the typical American near-beer. Also it's a nice restaurant with good food and a patio area - a great place to meet, eat and drink. Here's a link to their website: http://www.boscosbeer.com/ Let's firm this up when we get closer to Elvis Week 2017.

Or a vodka martini shaken not stirred

Hey, I'd love a martini but unfortunately once I get started I can't stop and then who knows what will happen or whether I remember all the damage I did!

Re: Elvis week 2017 planning!.

Fri Dec 23, 2016 6:38 am

Will be there! And BOSCOS is a great idea! Swell place!

My good friend Paddy and me will also be in Memphis from August 11 to August 17.
However, just before that, we have to catch Neil Diamond in San Diego and at the L.A. Forum.
It will be a bit of travelling :)
And... I also invited the Doc to come.
Would be nice to be able to meet some of the hardcore FECC people in Memphis.
Take care, best wishes for the Holidays.

Let's agree on an hour/day that's non eventful. Paul Sweeney did this 5 yrs ago, only during the Joe Esposito benefit IIRC, couldn't make it.
