To rub elbows with someone (AmE) = To rub shoulders with someone (BrE) mean "to associate with someone; to work closely with someone"
Do you know another phrase with this meaning?
We use that in BrE.
My youngers (i.e. nearly everybody) 'hang out' with people. Sounds risky to me.
If you're close with someone you say "we're tight".
