Last night as I was cooking dinner, Michael Jackson's song "The Way You Make Me Feel" came on the radio. As I was dancing around my kitchen and singing the song, I heard this expression and wanted to share it with you!
To 'paint the town' or 'paint the town red' means that someone is going to go out and have a really good time. Usually, this involves going to numerous parties or bars in one night.
For example: Brandie: "So everyone, we have a break at Solex in a couple of weeks. What do you plan on doing?"
Student: "I'm going to paint the town every night!"
