Thanksgiving movies are a bit thin on the ground, so when I remembered the 1969 movie Alice’s Restaurant based on Arlo Guthrie’s classic song, my belly was instantly filled with happy-hippie turkey goodness. No one does a big, communal feast like the counter culture revolution, so this Thanksgiving, take a trip back to 1969 and tag along with Arlo as he celebrates in a converted church with his long-haired pals. — Amy Merrick

Alice turns out the most delicious looking homespun style; long communal tables and walls decked with garlands of leaves make for an ideal Turkey Day. She lives and entertains in a converted church and owns a small-town restaurant filled with natural, simple essentials. Let’s take a page out of her book this year and host Thanksgiving with a hippie spirit at heart.
