The Berkshire is going bananas over Elvis
Elvis may have left the building, but his appetite lives on at the Berkshire. In honor of what would have been the King's 74th birthday tomorrow, the pork-pushing restaurant at 7352 East 29th Avenue is running a special Elvis promotion. From January 8-11, the Berkshire's "The King" sandwich -- peanut butter, caramelized bananas and crispy bacon on grilled Hawaiian bread -- is only $5.
And if you come dressed like Elvis, you get the sandwich free. We hear there are extra "Berk Bucks" for the best Elvis impersonation, too.
This is a real deal, considering that the last sandwich dedicated to Elvis -- at the Colorado Mine Company, a celebrated spot in Glendale -- would run you a fast fifty bucks. Rumor has it that Elvis would buy them buy the bushel when he was coming to town -- when he wasn't busy buying Cadillacs for friends and city officials, that is.
