Then There Was the Time Elvis Visited the Kalamazoo Burger King
Today's Elvis Presley's birthday. He's 84 today. Sure, some people say he passed away in 1977. HOWEVER, according to MLive.com, there's evidence he was in Kalamazoo at the Burger King AND Felpausch’s Supermarket in October of 1988.
I, for one, believe "the King" is still among us.
It is a matter of fact that Elvis played Wings Stadium twice and used to visit Kalamazoo when he would visit the Gibson Guitar factory. He would stay at the Columbia Plaza Hotel, which became an office building. Which is why, as late as 2010, Elvis was listed as still occupying Suite 210 there.
So, if you're driving on I-94 today and see a older Cadillac with a senior citizen driving - wave to the King.
