The Alice's Restaurant Masacree
It’s not officially Thanksgiving until you hear Alice’s Restaurant, right? But did you know the song has a #Poughkeepsie connection? We all know that Arlo Guthrie was there for The Massacree but did you know his friend and traveling companion for the holiday trip was Richard J. Robbins of Poughkeepsie? As Paul Harvey would say, “Now you know the rest of the story.”

I was born in Poughkeepsie in the 70's and grew up hearing it mentioned on TV seemingly all the time. I decided to find all of the instances I could of Poughkeepsie showing up in pop culture.
