Elvises will still meet and greet

It’s good to be the King--and profitable too.

The Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority approved a one-year contract extension this week with talent agencies that book “meet and greet” Elvis impersonators for the authority’s marketing events.

Ersatz Elvises will continue to get $650 per daily appearance on behalf of the city. That’s nearly double the $350 that showgirls are paid for similar four-hour gigs.
