This Wednesday, Aug. 24, at 7:30 p.m., El Ranchito is hosting its 9th Annual Elvis impersonator competition. For $3, customers can enjoy a side of Elvis with their Tex-Mex, as countless Elvis wannabes sing their hearts out and compete for the grand prize, $500 in cash.
The El Ranchito Elvis impersonator competition got its start in 2003, when ER general manager, Juan Sanchez (brother of co-founder Laura Sanchez), decided to honor his favorite singer with the contest. Sanchez, who used to participate in Elvis impersonator contests around town, now emcees the event.
