Elvis Sighting?

Elvis himself may be seen in Fells Point on Aug. 16 for the "Salute to Elvis Presley Day," which honors the king of rock and roll on the 17th anniversary of his death. So, get out those blue-suede shoes, put on a rhinestone-studded cape, and grow a really cool set of mutton-chop sideburns. Along with Elvis memorabilia displays and live music, there will be an Elvis look-alike contest. Notice we did not say Elvis impersonator contest. No cheesy croonings of "Love Me Tender" will be allowed. Just get out there and show everyone what a hunka, hunka burning love you are. The event is sponsored by the city Department of Recreation and Parks' Office of Adventures in Fun.

"Salute to Elvis Presley Day," noon Aug. 16 at Thames Square in Fells Point. Free. Call (410) 396-9177.

Learn to cook the way your great-great-great grandmother did. Cookbook author Sue Latini will be preparing recipes from the 1800s at the Baltimore City Life Museums' 1840 House. These culinary delights come from the kitchen of Mrs. B.C. Howard, a prominent Baltimore hostess who lived from 1801 to )) 1890. Even while raising her 12 children, Mrs. Howard always found time to prepare wonderful food. Her cooking skills were so well-known, in fact, that Harper's magazine wrote an article about her talent in 1882. Ms. Latini will prepare some of Mrs. Howard's most popular dishes, including deviled crab, Maryland sweet corn and peach pie.

"Fifty Years in a Maryland Kitchen," 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Aug. 13 at 1840 House, 50 S. Albemarle St. Admission is $5, $3.50 for ages 4-18, senior citizens and military personnel. Call (410) 396-3279.

If you have an event for this calendar, please send typed information and a photograph (if possible) five weeks in advance to Here & There, Sun Magazine, 501 N. Calvert St., Baltimore, Md. 21278.
