Alice's Restaurant is very near Niederwald, TX on HWY 21. Arlo Guthrie was never there, but then again, that was not the name of the restaurant in his anti-war song - just the name of his song! (see lyrics)

in Immortalized in Lyrics

A snappy little Top 40 hit by the Sir Douglas Quintet in the mid 60's. Not much intellectual merit and nothing more than a simple 1-4-5 chord progression but I never forgot the name Mendocino.

Immortalized in LyricsSouth Street

in Immortalized in Lyrics

South Street is Philadelphia's hip strip and trendy melting pot. Here you'll find a many-splendored promenade alive with way-kewl boutiques, eccentric shops, singular restaurants, bars, night clubs and cafes — and where the people-watching is as fun as the window-shopping. Aging hippies, the fashionably unfashionable, tongue-piercers, spike-haired skateboarders, and even nuclear families commingle comfortably on this eclectic and electric swath.
