Feeling the urge to shake, rattle, and roll while munching on a Hound Dog Sandwich of peanut butter, Wilson Ranch bacon, and banana on brioche bread?

Best shake those hips to the Musical Instrument Museum tomorrow.

From 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., tomorrow only, Saturday, August 6, the Musical Instrument Museum (MIM), will be servin' up a menu of southern favorites including sweet tea and Memphis-style BBQ as part of its day-long celebration of the new Elvis Presley permanent exhibit.
