    Come round

    Hi all,


    I found the meaning of this verb "Come round" in the Merriam-Webster dictionary as this:


    1 : to change direction
    2 : to return to a former condition especially : COME TO
    3 : to accede to a particular opinion or course of action <you'll come round to our side eventually>


    So I'm wondering what excatly "Come round" means in this sentence?


    'They are coming round for a drink tonight.'


    Thanks.
