Perfect Gentlemen and Dignified Achievable Men & Women Second Line (Photos)



The annual Father’s Day second line was put on by The Perfect Gentlemen’s Social Aid & Pleasure Club along with The Dignified Achievable Men & Women Social & Pleasure Club (DAM). The paraders strut through Central City, stopping along the way for refreshments and “street-meat” straight-off-the-smokers that are resting on the backs of various pick-up trucks. The event featured TBC Brass Band, and started and ended at the historic Gladstone Bar & Lounge.


Second Line Alert: Perfect Gentlemen and Dignified Achievable Men & Women


Father's Day is time for all men to shine. In Central City, it also means it's time for the Perfect Gentlemen to step out for their annual parade. On Sunday afternoon, the club heads out to the streets, wishing all a Happy Father's Day. 

 


Today in New Orleans 6.16.13


This Sunday, enjoy fried food and Cajun music at the Zoo, a second line in Central City, books and food at the Ashe CAC, and more. On this day in 1932, Huey Long’s new state capitol was opened during the inauguration of Governor O.K. Allen. Now, more Father’s Day fun.
