After Alice's Restaurant

One of our family Thanksgiving traditions is to listen to Arlo Guthries' Alice's Restaurant as we go to Dolores' mother's house for dinner. The Boston Globe today has a good article about Alice Brock who today makes her living in Provincetown.
Alice Brock, the Alice of ''Alice's Restaurant'' - the name of the Arlo Guthrie song (1966), the Arthur Penn movie (1969), and her own second restaurant, in Stockbridge. She lives and works as an artist in Provincetown, where she has a home full of books and art that she has collected over the years.
