Arlo Guthrie/Alice's Restaurant

I love living here in California. I'm constantly discovering new things. This one is right in my backyard:

Right up the road, less than 25 minutes from my house, is the famous Alice's Restaurant. The same one immortalized by Arlo Guthrie in the song of the same name.

I drove up with the kids through some of the most awesome twisties this side of, well, anywhere. They were all out of their famous pulled pork sandwichs, but their brisket was terrific. We sat on the back patio on a picnic bench we shared with a biker who turned out to be a PhD in physics and worked in radiology. Talk about small world.

There were literally hundreds of bikes and bikers out front, but my son only had eyes for the Lamborghini Diablo in the parking lot. All in all, it was a great day. We'll be back.

Neil Young lives just down the road, btw.

Really? Does he play local gigs? Man, I'd love to see him in a small venue.
