    "ask somebody not to do something"?

    Hi,
    I have two question:

    1. Can we say "ask somebody not to do something"?
    i.e: He asked me not to play football in the house

    2. Is this sentence all right:
    He invited me to have a drink with him.

    Thank you very much
    Newbie.

    1. OK
    2. OK. Also, if he pays for the drinks, you can say "He told me to have a drink on him"
