Top definition
A street known in each of three large cities as the historical, cultural, and commercial center of the city. In the Chicago neighborhood of Uptown, Broadway is home to the Aragon Ballroom, Riviera Theater, Uptown Theatre, and Green Mill Jazz Club. In San Francisco, Broadway Street celebrates the city’s culture through adult oriented venues such as the Condor Club, the hungry i Club, the Showgirls theater, and the City Lights Bookstore. As I grew up near San Francisco, I always figured that’s why it’s called “Broad”way. So, when traveling with my fiancée in New York, and she asked me if I wanted to catch a show on Broadway Avenue, well… let’s just say the resulting misunderstanding led to a substantial fight.
Tourist 1: Hey, do you want to pick up a show on Broadway?
Tourist 2: I don't know. In this city, would it be "The King and I" or "The King and Di"?
