Open Thread: Alice’s Restaurant

It’s a Thanksgiving tradition in my family to dust off the Alice’s Restaurant record and give it a listen.

Please enjoy this extended version of Arlo Guthire’s awesome song and have a great Thanksgiving.

    I know we have a number of ASL speakers here, including several interpreters for the deaf. This will interest you, or anyone with ASL experience:

    Happy week after Thanksgiving to all!
    We should send out a search party for AKM, to make sure she wasn’t eaten by Chapter 3.

    Heartbreaking film: http://www.zengardner.com/invisible-nation/#comment-41835 called Invisible Nation, about the Algonquin. Repeated ad nauseum with many, many tribes.

    I played this for my son when he was in high school. He had a whole new appreciation for me after that – seemed to realize that before I was his mom, I was a real person!

    You know, I have heard that you can get anything you want at Alice’s Restaurant.

      … except Alice. Speaking of restaurants, my neighbor/friend and I ate our Thanksgivukkah meal at Angelica Kitchen, an east village stalwart. After several years of being the only vegan at the table (when I accompanied the ex to family dinner, and brought all my own food), it was great to spend a couple hours in an organic vegan restaurant, sharing a terrific meal and a great bottle of wine (I brought a cranberry-honey wine from California). I brought home 2/3 of my salad, 1/3 of my main, and most of the dessert. All of it was terrific. Here’s the menu, should you want a peek: http://angelicakitchen.com/pdf/menus/thanksgiving2013flyer.pdf

      Health and peace. I’m grateful for The Mudflats.

        Hmm, you know I used to live 2 blocks away from Angelica and never went once – one of those places that my friends and I always said “Oh, we should go there…” and then continued on to the amazing Italian restaurant 4 blocks south, or the pub 2 blocks south or the mac and cheese place a block east…

        Ok… now I’m really really missing the East Village.

        • Zyxomma says:

          We miss you, Zach. However, you’re doing great things in AK. If there’s anything you need from the EV, let me know; the post office is three blocks away.

      I’d sing that refrain with my wife’s name instead of Alice, everytime I watched her cook up a separate entree for the daughters because they are finicky eaters, and didn’t want to eat what she had prepared for dinner… spoiled kids !! needless to say, I had my “Man Shield” up to deflect the lightening bolts from her eyes as I sang….. :)

    Haven’t heard that in a long time. Thanks and Happy Thanksgiving.
