    What’s lunchtime without specialties like grilled cheese sandwiches, gourmet tacos, and ice cream sandwiches served right outside your office door in a parking lot?

    Newton officials are holding a public hearing Monday on a proposal to allow food trucks at an office park on Wells Avenue in the N2 Innovation District. The measure is a “key priority for the property owners there, and the city’s economic development program,” according to a memo from the Planning Department. The hearing is set for 7:45 p.m. in Newton City Hall.

    Dedham has a lot on its plate when Town Meeting begins on Monday. Members will be asked to authorize spending up to $45 million to build a new public safety building on the site of the current town hall. They’ll also vote on a proposal to create a Human Rights Commission and outlaw recreational marijuana businesses in town.

    It’s time to tune up your vocal chords for that Thanksgiving favorite — no, not “Over the River and Through the Woods,” but “Alice’s Restaurant.”

    Arlo Guthrie’s 18-minute, 34-second anthem to 1960s counterculture is based on a real-life adventure, much of which happened in Stockbridge. But you can catch some of the spirit in North Andover during a mini-concert Wednesday at Merrimack College’s Rogers Center for the Arts, 315 Turnpike St. Sing along with Guthrie’s classic during a free performance at noon.

    Want to locally source your Thanksgiving menu? The Cape Ann Farmer’s Market is hosting a Thanksgiving Harvest Market at Gloucester Unitarian Universalist Church, 10 Church St., on Saturday. Stock up on fresh fish and produce from local farms from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Volunteers from Pathways for Children will collect toys and gifts for families at the holidays. For more information, visit www.capeannfarmersmarket.org.
