    Re: what's the difference?

    Hello Gio

    "Me and my friends" is correct in standard English when you and your friends are the object of the verb:

    1. The kindly bartender gave me and my friends free drinks all evening.

    "I and my friends" is correct when you and your friends are the subject of the verb:

    2. I and my friends often go to the beach on a Sunday afternoon.

    It's considered more "polite" to put yourself in second place, e.g.

    2a. My friends and I often go to the beach...
