Sponsored Edition: Dancing with the Stars

The anticipation: building. The crowd: restless. Girls: totally fainting.

The curtains pull away, the spotlights focus and behold, a young, dashing Elvis Presley stands right before your eyes. (Well, the next best thing, anyway.)

It doesn’t get any better than this.

Actually, it does. Because when you spend your night at Royal Hawaiian Center, you get much more than excitement, live music and a whole lotta hip action. There’s a full lineup of memorable moments that can last until the wee hours of the morning if you’re up for it (and yes, yes you are).

First, round up your girlfriends and make reservations for Legends in Concert Waikiki’s Rock-A-Hula show. Opt for the VIP dinner and start your night in a swanky lounge, sipping mai tais and nibbling on hors d’oeuvres while you snag a photo op with the hunk of burning love himself. Then, take a seat stage-side and tuck into a four-course meal of Maine lobster and salad, steak, salmon and gooey molten chocolate cake.

After that, sit back and get All Shook Up as dopplegangers for Elvis Presley, Michael Jackson, Lady Gaga and Elton John pull off chart-topping performances. Fair warning: gyrating hips and flashy suits abound in this show; swooning and screaming are definitely encouraged.

Once the show ends, you’ll shake hands and take photos with the stars themselves out in the lobby… and yes, feel free to ask Michael Jackson if his nose is real or fake. (We won’t tell you his answer, but let’s just say it’ll blow your mind.)

Not ready to call it a night just yet? Head over to Il Lupino Trattoria & Wine Bar for late night happy hour, where you’ll throw back cocktails and plates of calamari, bruschetta, pomodoro covered meatballs, pizza and more, all for just $7 each.

With a night this amazing, you’ll leave saying:

Thank you. Thank you, very much.
