There’s an event that’s happening on Wednesday that better sound amazing to you. And if it doesn’t sound amazing to you, we’ll wonder if you’ve lobotomized the part of your brain that acknowledges “awesome things.” (And if that really happened, I’m so sorry. Also, awkward.) Back in 2003, El Ranchito’s general manager and Elvis mega-enthusiast, Juan Sanchez, started an Elvis impersonation contest at the restaurant. Ten years later, it’s still going strong. Twice a year, they put away the mariachis and open their stage to every Elvis impersonator in the metroplex and Blue Suede Juan, an impersonator himself, emcees the whole dang thing. So if you like your authentic Mexican cuisine with a side of sequined jumpsuit, this is the event for you. P.S. The owners of El Ranchito own La Calle Doce, too. LEGIT. The cover charge is a measly $5 and reservations are encouraged. The night starts at 7:30 p.m. at El Ranchito, 610 W. Jefferson Blvd.
