Past Words of the Day

A Cajun American play on the word "go", which derives its orthography from French influence in the area. You'll often see the word used in reference to Louisiana sports teams, as in "Geaux (LSU) Tigers" and "Geaux (New Orleans) Saints".

Stretch of Peachtree Rd in the Buckhead neighborhood of Atlanta that is marked by the presence of a number of large churches built close together.

Original nickname for the Syracuse University sports teams. No, it has nothing to do with crackers, but rather Syracuse's prominence in the salt trade. The Saltine Warriors then became the Orangemen, and then the more gender-neutral Orange.

A West-Side Manhattan neighborhood that at one time, was just what its name suggests. However, since the 1990s it has somehow managed to evolve into a hip and fashionable place to be, complete with an active nightlife and many trendy nightclubs.

1. Constructed in 1969, the World's Largest Six Pack belongs to the City Brewery in La Crosse, Wisconsin. According to the sign in front of the six pack, the six "beers" contain a total of 22,220 barrels of beer, which is 688,200 gallons. This is enough to fill 7,340,796 cans. Also, placed end-to-end, these beer cans would run 565 miles long. Even more amazing, the World's Largest Six Pack would provide a single person a six pack daily for 3,351 years. Wow!

2. The World's Largest Six is La Crosse's claim to fame. Beer is the city's lifeblood, which is evident every weekend on 3rd Street--the main bar area of its downtown.
