Turning Seventeen at Ruby Tuesday’s
Laura Chanoux

ME TOO. Grew up in rural Missouri, Olive Garden and Ruby Tuesday’s were fancy, and neither of which were anywhere nearby, so driving there was an EVENT.

I also wonder if commercials were a part of this. I learned so much about the non-rural-Missouri-world from television and magazines (until the internet happened) and commercials made Olive Garden sound like the fanciest thing.

ALSO also, I seriously think those chains were a lil’ fancier back in the ’90s. We dressed up to eat there, and the tables weren’t permanently sticky. That kind of thing.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
