White Castle is the fast food burger chain infamous for its hamburgers called "sliders". It was founded in Wichita in 1921, nearly twenty years before McDonald's got started. White Castle was catapulted into pop culture immorality while being featured prominently in the Harold & Kumar movie series, the first of which was "Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle".

1. A very unique term to New Orleans for the median of a street. The Spanish and French, who inhabited the older part of town, could do business on the "neutral" part of Canal Street with the Americans, who inhabited the newer part of town that started on the other side of the street. By extension, all strips of land in the middle of New Orleans streets have become "neutral ground".

2. A part of Western Louisiana that was temporarily made neutral after the Louisiana Purchase. Texas (Spanish) and the United States laid claim to the strip of land, but ended up tabling the issue until later. It is also know as Sabine Free State.

3. Neutral Ground Coffeehouse is New Orleans' oldest coffeehouse, surviving a kitchen fire and Hurricane Katrina over the years. It started out as the Penny Post, but later was called Neutral Ground.

4. Also the name of a coffee shop on Danneel Street.

The most famous event in New Orleans, essentially one humongous free party that includes a parade and costumed revelers, the latter of which are known for their reputed debauchery and prolific consumption of alcohol.
