when a group of people go on a short journey, usually for pleasure or education:
Rosie's going on a class/school outing to the Museum of Modern Art
This term seems to refer to excursions etc.
Can it be used for friends going out to a restaurant/movie theatre etc. ? If no, is there an equivalent, and if yes, is there a more common word?

Yes, but we usually don't call it anything. We just say we went. I suppose you could say trip though.
