    Have you been to any bars lately? (That's what it makes me think of.)

    Re: meaning of (drink off)

    I haven't heard the phrase but if someone said "Do you want to have a 'drink off'?" I would assume they meant a drinking competition, probably simply involving two people who drink alcohol until one of them can't drink any more.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Well, I wasn't far off. (It seems to be used mostly in reference to hard liquor.)
