Charlie Baum Alice's Restaurant (32) RE: Alice's Restaurant 25 Nov 09


It was a couple of years ago on Thanksgiving, and Lisa and I were driving up to Maine to visit with her son, and on Thursday, the traffic was very heavy on I-84 starting around Danbury, Connecticut, so we thought we'd take US 7 north to the Mass Pike. We had the radio on listening to public radio, and about the time we were leaving Great Barrington, Mass., they started to play "Alice's Restaurant" on the Albany, NY public radio station. In a few minutes, we were driving into Stockbridge, and we crossed the railroad tracks and followed US 7 another half-mile, and there, on the right, is the site of Alice's Restaurant. We parked in front of Alice's Restaurant and listened to the rest of the song. It's the only time I've listened to "Alice's Restaurant" on Thanksgiving Day parked in front of Alice's Restaurant. When it ended, I asked Lisa if she wanted to continue the tour and go visit the town dump, but we figured it was probably closed on Thanksgiving.
