1. In New York City, when you order a "slice," it is assumed that you are ordering a slice of plain cheese pizza. If you say: "Give me a slice," then you'll be handed a slice of cheese pizza. If you want toppings, you need to specify your slice (ie: "I'll have a slice of pepperoni.").
2. In NYC, it is very common to "grab a slice" as you're walking somewhere. Pizza, that is. People in this city all seem to be able to eat and walk at the same time with ease, and street-front windows where you can grab a slice to go are plentiful!
The Dirty Bird is a celebratory dance popularized by ex-Atlanta Falcons star Jamal Anderson. Anderson, who was known for his colorful antics on and off the field (much like Muhammad Ali, whom he knew as a child), would execute this goofy dance in the end zone after touchdowns.
The "Dirty Birds", when plural, can refer to the Atlanta Falcons football team and its players.
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.
