Arlo Guthrie’s “Alice’s Restaurant,” A Thanksgiving Classic

Happy Thanksgiving!

Alice's RestaurantTake a break today from the wedding planning and from figuring out where to seat Aunt Mildred at your wedding reception. Gather your friends and family around the PC, turn up the speakers and enjoy this classic, holiday favorite.

Alice’s Restaurant” is a musical monologue by singer-songwriter, Arlo Guthrie, released on his 1967 album Alice’s Restaurant. The song is one of Guthrie’s most prominent works, based on a true incident in his life that began on Thanksgiving Day, 1965. It also inspired a 1969 movie of the same name.

It’s not a song you’ll ever hear a DJ play at a Kansas City wedding reception. But, it is the best, if not the only song ever written about Thanksgiving.

Everybody sing…”You can get anything you want at Alice’s Restaurant.”
