Poboy — (also po' boy, po-boy, po boy) a traditional Louisiana sandwich that usually consists of roast beef or fried seafood, often shrimp, crawfish, fish, oysters or crab. The meat is served on baguette-like New Orleans French bread, known for its crisp crust and fluffy center.
Second Line — a tradition in brass band parades in New Orleans. The "main line" or "first line" is the members of the actual club with the parading permit as well as the brass band. Those who follow the band just to enjoy the music are called the "second line." Participants walk and sometimes twirl a parasol or handkerchief in the air. It has been called "the quintessential New Orleans art form – a jazz funeral without a body."
