Saratoga Saver Song Of The Week: Alice's Restaurant

Saratoga Saver Song of the Week: Alice's Restaurant by Arlo Guthrie

As a kid, hearing Alice's Restaurant on the radio while driving to visit relatives each Thanksgiving was something my brother and I could never escape. My parents were always able to happily tune it in, sometimes with multiple listenings. What was this wordy song we were forced to suffer thru and why was it so long? My brother and I would complain, but to no avail, we were in it for the long haul.

As an adult I've grown to love the song and listen to it every Thanksgiving. My mom and I went to Lake George to hear Arlo Guthrie sing it this summer and had a great time. You can definitely get anything you want, at Alice's Restaurant. (Excluding Alice!)
