All the further: Pittsburgh, PA
Used instead of "as far as", for example, "I went to the store to buy cauliflower but the snack food aisle was all the further I got."
Theodore Roosevelt: Milwaukee, WI
Theodore Roosevelt was shot in front of Milwaukee's Gilpatrick Hotel in 1912. The then presidential nominee for the Progressive Party was shot in the chest, but went on to deliver his speech later that day because the bullet was slowed down by a glass case and a manuscript. They don't make'em like they used to!
Smallbany: Albany, NY
A derogatory local nickname for Albany invoked by its more disenchanted residents.
Cross Dress for Less: San Francisco, CA
Local nickname for the off-price retailer "Ross Dress for Less." Ross Stores is headquartered in nearby Pleasanton, CA, and also operates dd's Discounts. Since these stores offer prices even lower than the Dress for Less stores, they call them "dd's," which stands for "deep discounts." Of course this makes the name redundant (Deep Discount's Discounts).
Minneapple, The: Minneapolis, MN
(noun) Nickname for Minneapolis, particularly in the 1980s and 1990s; meant as a contrast to "The Big Apple", New York City.
Polar Plunge: Madison, WI
The Polar Plunge is an event for the benefit of the Special Olympics during which participants jump into a swimming hole in Lake Monona. Since the event takes place in late February (February 20th, 2010 at Olin Park), the lake is always frozen solid. Only the bravest (craziest) of souls dare jump. For many, sponsoring a "plunger" is the best way to participate in this very Wisconsinesque activity.
