Memorial Day weekend is right around the corner, and you know what that means: three days of trying to sleep as tourists cruise past your apartment blasting music loud enough to shake your walls; putting up with cops on every corner of South Beach; and the biggest traffic nightmares of the year. Oh, and you might get shot. Kinda makes you want to get the hell outta Dodge, doesn't it?
Please allow us to humbly suggest a better Memorial Day locale: Graceland.
The folks at Elvis' former home are commemorating the 35th anniversary of The King's death with a trio of exhibits showing off some of the most iconic -- and most intimate -- artifacts from his life. This is no glorified Hard Rock Cafe showcase; this is rock and roll history before your very eyes. So we couldn't believe it when Graceland's director of archives, Angie Marchese, brought some of the most impressive pieces to our offices yesterday afternoon.
