    Re: a round of drinking

    After playing 18 holes of golf, the foursome returned to the club house for a round of drinking.

    If everyone in a group or at a table orders a drink, it is considered a "round." So if the waitress approaches the table while the group is drinking, and asks "Can I bring anything for anyone?" someone might say, "Yes, please bring us another round," which means for her to bring everyone another one of whatever it is they're drinking.

    - - - -

    Other examples:

    "It's getting late, I'd better go home."
    "It's not that late! Stay and have one more round with us."


    "Anyone want another beer? I'm paying for this round."
