Remember Alice's Restaurant? Back in the 1960's, it was a wildly popular song, then turned into a movie. Pretty soon, you'll be able to actually get a table at the famed "Alice's Restaurant" when it opens at Hard Rock Park.
Folk legend Arlo Guthrie stopped in last week to see how things were going, as the restuarant continues to take shape.
Hard Rock Park - committed to celebrating the spirit of rock ‘n' roll - is the perfect venue to honor Guthrie and his world-famous 18 minute long musical monologue. The restaurant will be park's only table-service restaurant ("sit down, sit in, you've got time"), offerring guests props and reminders of Thanksgiving Day 1965, including the "Group W Bench" and what will be the most popular table in the house: the reservations-only Arlo Table, a psychedelic trip featuring 60 artists that influenced Guthrie, or were influenced by him.
Surrounded by acoustic and folk music from the last four decades, the comfort food menu (created in part by Guthrie himself) will offer a complete selection of entrees, soups, salads and, of course, desserts. Many have names that will bring back memories, including Officer Obie's Pan Fried Pork Chops to the inevitable Thanksgiving Dinner. "It is an attraction in its own right," said Steven Goodwin, Hard Rock Park's CEO.
