Jelly-House Rock

At some point in time, people will realize that Elvis Presley is dead. He's not incognito or in exile, he's in the ground, six feet under. And it's safe to assume those famous fried peanut butter and jelly sandwiches didn't help. Would he have heeded all the advice now regarding America's obesity problem? It's hard to say for certain, but Dick's Last Resort sure as hell isn't listening to any health warnings. Just in time for your New Year's resolutions (and in celebration of the King's birthday), enter Dick's Jelly Donut-Eating contest and get your "Jailhouse Rock" on at Elvis Karaoke. The winner of each will walk away with phat cash prizes ($100 for the doughnuts, $500 for karaoke) and an even fatter tummy.
