Phrased like that, it means “do you do/want coke?,” at least most of the time. Thats the more specific “definition,” though surely it could be used for other drugs. [I suppose sex too, if said to the opposite sex. Likely sex and coke. ;)]
Contextual. In general it would involve drinking and or drugs if you are both the same sex [like 2 guys or 2 girls, or in a fairly large group in public] if it is in a more intimate setting, it would probably be sex in combination with drugs or booze.
In that other thread, I would have read it as sharing drugs and possibly a bit of being hit on for sex, but mainly drugs. He may have been looking to buy drugs. Frequently people will smoke up outside instead of inside so the place doesn’t smell of weed.
It’s not just drugs, IMO, but drugs in a social situation. The guy who tokes up by himself doesn’t necessarily “like to party.”
Also, I think it depends on how you say it. A guy or girl with shifty eyes: drugs. A girl acting all seductive: sex. A guy with that wolf-look? Sex. A person on a microphone with a band? The music’s about to get loud and/or awesome (after a little audience response).
The one thing it never seems to have is it’s literal meaning, except in black/white comedy skits.
Huh. I must move in entirely the [del]wrong[/del]right crowd. To me, it would mean “Would you like to go to a venue that plays much more dance-oriented music than the background noisewe are currently listening to?” or “Do you know of a good example of such a venue?” If someone wanted to know if I wanted to do drugs, they’d ask directly, something like “Want to get high?” or “Want a puff?” or “Have any weed on you?” or “Are you still carrying Ritalin as I know is your want?”. Ditto casual sex - I’ve had both “Want to go back to my place” and “Want to go somewhere and fuck” many times, never been asked if I want to “party”.
Of course, I’d say no to drugs (except the Ritalin…) and casual sex, but I’m always up for dancing, so this might be my own projection onto my environment.
