    Cool bring someone out

    Two people are in a party. One of them asks the other:

    What brings you out this evening?

    Is it meaning: What has attracted you to come here tonight? but said in a polite manner, denoting interest or curiosity in the presence of him, kind of welcome to the party from a person who didn't expect to meet him.

    Thanks

    Default Re: bring someone out

    Yes.
    It could also mean, ""How is it that you are here at this party tonight?"

    I would answer, "I know Sam (the host). We work together."
