If you think Elvis impersonators are only to be found in Vegas, Chris MacDonald will reprogram your synapses. MacDonald does the curled-lip thing every Thursday evening at Memphis Barbeque Co. on North Federal Highway in Lighthouse Point. He also does the costume thing, taking audiences through the Elvis fashion years. For those who prefer blues to kitsch with their ribs, Memphis owner Walter Popielarczyk also hosts live acts such as Roach Thompson and the David Ware band. Entertainment usually starts at 7:00 p.m. Ribs begin at $9.95. Call 954-946-6996 for details.
