Walking in Memphis:

   Living in the Great Northeast offers residents a great deal of recreational activities, very close to home. Now I usually don't write about things happening outside of the Capital Region, but there's a fantastic event  going on every year up in Lake George that I always attend, and I'd like to share with you.
   Elvis Weekend in Lake George will be held from May 31, thru June 3. All the businesses run fantastic specials, as do the eateries. But the main attraction is the army of Elvis impersonators found pretty much on every street corner during this celebration of the King of Rock n Rolls, life and career. I always crack up watching the tribute artist. Their attention to detail is amazing, and when some of them sing, you could close your eye's and think you're listening to the real thing. The point I'm making is that the entire weekend is good family fun, and for Elvis fans -- it's Mecca!
  I was made aware of a GREAT deal being offered by my favorite hotel up at the lake. Former Trojan, Rob Gregor is now operating the Motel Montreal ( www.lakegeorgemotelmontreal.com).
Here's the deal:
*Book a minimum, two day stay, at $79 per night (depending on number of people in room), and Rob will give you a pair of, 'Blue Suede Shoes' -- Yeah baby! Rob treats all of his guest so much like family, you would swear he was Italian! The motel is in a great spot by the lake, offering a variety of activities, and offers a peaceful setting for you to unwind. If you decide to book a room for this fantastic weekend, tell Rob that Vito sent you, and you'll get a 0% discount!
     Lake George is such a treasure, right in our back yard. Take a ride up to the Motel Montreal, and drive back home in your new, Blue Suede Shoe's!
