Traditionally second line parades are seen across new orleans at jazz funerals. Musicians play upbeat music and strut around with umbrellas, handkerchiefs or napkins in a performance to honor the life of the deceased. The musicians are typically considered the ‘first line’ and the procession of guests are considered the ‘second line’. Ruth chris honors their new orleans heritage at every restaurant opening with their own second line. We were able to join in on the fun as the second line parade weaved through the dining room filling the space with joyful music, dancing and lots of hankie waving.
I hope everyone is able to try the new denver ruth chris or make a special visit to one in your home town soon. Valentine’s day is just a week away so it might be the perfect opportunity.
