THUR 11/24: Happy Turkey Day

I'm thankful for many things. Among them, I'm grateful that people read the stuff I put here and have a good time.

There will also be live jazz at The Beehive from noon to midnight. You have a drink at the bar while people eat fancy meals.


THUR 11/24

Noon, 4pm
"Alice's Restaurant Massacree": Thanksgiving Broadcast
on WZLX (100.7 FM), WUMB (91.9 FM), more

Way back in 1965, Arlo Guthrie celebrated Thanksgiving out in the Berkshires. As hippies they were often oppressed by "The Man", so he and a friend were arrested for 'littering'.

It's kind of funny -- and it goes on for more than 18 minutes -- so I might listen whille doing my Thanksgiving prep...

YouTube and so forth below.

THUR 11/24

Thanksgiving Meal
at Great Scott, 1222 Comm Ave, Allston
Free / All Ages

For more than 20 years, Great Scott (Phoenix write-up from a few years ago) has been a place for people who don't have anywhere to go on Thanksgiving -- or simply have nowhere to go. I wish I had first-hand knowledge to pass on, but I'm usually content to cook for myself when I'm eating solo.

From what I can gather: A few hundred people show up as they serve food from approximately noon to 4pm.

They say, "Everyone is welcome to lend a hand or grab a plate."
