5:59 p.m., Feb. 2, 2011----“Valentine's Day with Elvis” will be the theme of a special program at the Courtyard Newark at the University of Delaware, beginning at 6 p.m., Sunday, Feb. 13.
Highlight of the evening will be a performance by nationally known Elvis tribute artist Bob Lougheed and the Mystery Train Band.
The evening will begin with cocktails from the cash bar and special Elvis hors d'oeuvres. Then a three-course dinner will feature filet mignon and the hotel's signature crab cake entrée, with a complimentary champagne toast to the king.
A bridal chapel will be set up at the Courtyard for couples who would like to have their photos taken with the king, with prints mailed after the event.
Cost of the dinner is $59 per person, and a special room rate of $79 per couple is also available, including a full breakfast for two in the Courtyard Café on Valentine's Day.
Lougheed has performed extensively around the region, and last September he won the fan choice award at the 10th annual Elvis Fest in Dewey Beach.
