The Cannery will also host a tribute to Elvis, the King’s Birthday Celebration at The Club on Jan. 7-8 with "The American Trilogy Show." The birthday festivities begin at 6:30 p.m. on Friday with a free pre-show party hosted by Stephen Christopher, an Elvis expert licensed by the Elvis Presley Estate. On Saturday, The Club will show free Elvis movies beginning at 3 p.m. with birthday cake following.

Following the festivities each night, Paul Casey stars in "The American Trilogy Show," which takes the audience on a trip through Elvis’ life from the 1950s to the 1970s. Casey is the official Elvis of the Las Vegas Convention & Visitors Bureau. Joining Casey to help tell the story are special guests Sonny West, Elvis’ personal bodyguard; Ed Bonja, Elvis’ official photographer and tour manager; Cynthia Pepper, co-star in "Kissin’ Cousins;" Darlene Tompkins, co-star in "Blue Hawaii;" and conducting the show is Elvis’ original Las Vegas Musical Conductor, Bobby Morris. Admission is only $5 plus tax and the show begins at 8 p.m..

The free Breakfast Club at Casino MonteLago at Lake Las Vegas continues this month. The popular club (free for Club Uno members) meets from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. every Tuesday in the Tappo Lounge. In addition to trading "war stories" about their latest jackpots, club members indulge in coffee, tea, orange juice, mini-muffins, Danish and donuts, free of charge to all Club Uno members. As an added bonus, prize drawings are held at 11 a.m.
