Blue-Top Drive-In Hosts Elvis Cruise Night

Highland, IN  Calling all Elvis fans.  The Blue Top Drive-In in Highland is hosting Elvis Cruise Night on Saturday, July 18 from 4 p.m. to midnight.  Elvis lovers will enjoy great music, stylish cars and a special performance by the star of All Shook Up, the new musical at the Theatre at the Center in Munster.  There will be a contest for the Best Elvis, and also an Elvis Pelvis dance-off.  It is also cruise night, so guests can check out some amazing classic cars.    

To start things off for the evening, David Sajewich, the lead actor from All Shook Up at Theatre at the Center in Munster, will appear at 5 p.m. to perform several Elvis hits from the energetic new musical.  After a few songs, Sajewich will emcee the Blue Top Drive-In’s Best Elvis contest.  Audience members will help the Blue Top find the best Elvis look-alike/sound-alike.  Guests are encouraged to bust out their jumpsuits and don some sideburns and take part in the festivities in honor of “the King”.  First prize for the Best Elvis is $150 plus two tickets to see All Shook Up at the Theatre at the Center.  All Shook Up opens on July 16 and continues through August 16 is a jukebox musical featuring the music of Elvis Presley.  In addition to the Best Elvis contest, there will be an Elvis Pelvis dance-off.  The person with the coolest hip-shaking moves will win two mouth-watering Blue Top hamburgers.  The four runners up will win one delicious hamburger each.  This family friendly event is free and open to the public.  And since Saturday night is always cruise night at the Blue Top, there will be hundreds of classic cars for guests to enjoy 

The historic Blue-Top Drive-In is located at 8801 Indianapolis Blvd in Highland, Indiana. The Blue-Top Drive-In has a great retro menu of hamburgers, shakes and fries along with fun favorites like Green River Soda and root beer floats.   The Blue Top has become a popular hang-out for car enthusiasts who like to show off their hot rods.  And the old-fashioned juke box still has the best music of the 1960s and beyond.  The Blue-Top Drive-In is a great destination for families as there are many delicious ice cream parlor favorites on the menu.  To learn more about the Blue Top, visit www.bluetopdrivein.com or call 219-838-1233.
