    Default pall around

    Hello, I came across with 1 "phrasal verb" pall around, which fits to the sentence: "having grown in Santa Monica and palled around with other aspiring actors." What does pall around means in that sentence? another one is ice closet. "they were hiding in the ice closet in the hotel room." what does ice closet mean?
    Since then I appreciate any help, thank you!

    Bemvinda!

    'pal around' (I expect that's the spelling) isn't an expression I've met. But the context suggests it means 'spend time together as pals'.

    'ice closet' - again, not one I've met. But presumably a refrigerated room - used in hotel catering

    Bob is correct, it is spelled "pal" and can either be used as a noun or verb. "He is my pal" means that he is my good friend. "I used to pal around with Fred when we were younger" means that when I was a child, Fred was my friend and we hung out together and did things together.


    In a hotel, the "ice closet" usually refers to the small alcove on each floor where the ice machine and other vending machines are located.

    Smile Re: pall around

    thank u all. the pall around thing was kind of "verbalized" in the sentence that's I added an "ed" it I singled out the whole phrase to make it easier to get help. Thank you guys!
