Appearing in Person, Elvis the Elf
Now at the mall, Elvis the Elf, magician and comedian, entertaining children of all ages.
December 15, 2003
From the introduction, Elvis the Elf is appearing this week at Summerset Mall at 6:30, 7:00, 7:30, 8:00, and 8:30 each night Monday-Friday; at each time, Elvis will be in a different one of five mall locations, while in a time slot for the week he will also be at a different one of the five spots. By clue 1, on Thursday, Elvis will appear consecutively at the Egyptian Theater lobby, Gepetto's Toy Store, and the Christmas tree. Therefore, he will be performing at the theater lobby at 6:30, 7:00, or 7:30. If he were scheduled for the theater lobby at 7:00, the toy store at 7:30, and the Christmas tree at 8:00, by clue 5, he would be at the Palm Fountain at 7:30 on Wednesday and at the theater lobby at 7:30 on Friday. By clue 2, however, the day after he is at the Palm Fountain at 8:00 he will appear at the Christmas tree at 8:00 would put Elvis at the Palm Fountain at 8:00 on Wednesday, a contradiction. So, Elvis isn't set for the Egyptian Theater lobby at 7:00 on Thursday in clue 1. If Elvis the Elf were scheduled to be at the theater lobby at 7:30 on Thursday, followed by the toy store at 8:00 and the Christmas tree at 8:30, he would be slated to appear at the Palm Fountain at 7:30 on Tuesday and at the toy store at 7:30 on Wednesday (clue 5). By clue 2, Elvis would be appearing at the Palm Fountain at 8:00 on Monday and at the Christmas tree at 8:00 on Tuesday. By clue 3, he would be performing on Tuesday at Gepetto's Toy Store at 6:30 and at Yummy Food Court at 7:00. His 8:30 appearance on Tuesday then would be at the theater lobby, which it isn't (4). So, Elvis the Elf isn't set for the theater lobby at 7:30 on Thursday. On Thursday, Elvis can be seen at the Egyptian Theater lobby at 6:30, at Gepetto's Toy Store at 7:00, and at the mall Christmas tree at 7:30. By clue 5, the entertainer's 7:30 time will have him at the Palm Fountain on Monday, the toy store on Tuesday, and the theater lobby on Wednesday; by elimination, Elvis will be at the Yummy Food Court at 7:30 on Friday. By clue 3, on Tuesday, Elvis the Elf will appear at the food court at 8:00 and at the Palm Fountain at 8:30. Since he will be at the theater lobby at 6:30 on Thursday, on Tuesday Elvis will be at the theater lobby at 7:00 and at the Christmas tree at 6:30. Since he will be at the mall Christmas tree at 7:30 on Thursday, by clue 2, Elvis will be at the Christmas tree at 8:00 on Friday and at the Palm Fountain at 8:00 on Thursday. By elimination, his Thursday food court appearance is set for 8:30. Since Elvis will be at the toy store at 7:00 on Thursday, by clue 6, on Friday he will be at the toy store at 6:30 and at the Palm Fountain at 7:00. By elimination, his 8:30 Friday performance will be at the theater lobby. The 6:30 Palm Fountain appearance must be on Wednesday; by elimination, then, Monday's 6:30 performance will be at the food court. The 7:00 food court appearance then will be on Wednesday. At 7:00 Monday, Elvis will entertain at the Christmas tree. Since the theater lobby appearance is at 8:30 on Friday, the theater lobby performance on Monday will be at 8:00--followed by an 8:30 toy store event. On Wednesday, Elvis will be at the toy store at 8:00 and at the Christmas tree at 8:30. In sum, Elvis the Elf will appear at Summerset Mall this week in order each day at 6:30, 7:00, 7:30, 8:00, and 8:30 as follows:

  • Monday: Yummy Food Court, Christmas tree, Palm Fountain, Egyptian Theater lobby, Gepetto's toy store
  • Tuesday: Christmas tree, theater lobby, toy store, food court, Palm Fountain
  • Wednesday: Palm Fountain, food court, theater lobby, toy store, Christmas tree
  • Thursday: theater lobby, toy store, Christmas tree, Palm Fountain, food court
  • Friday: toy store, Palm Fountain, food court, Christmas tree, theater lobby
