As a lover of revelry and general jollification, Sammy was particularly adept at keeping the night from closing down around him and his crew. His friends were all married and promised their wives, to a man, that they’d be home before midnight. But Sammy was particularly adept at assembling “coalitions of the willing.” They would follow him from bar to bar until day broke and they found themselves throwing twenties at topless dancers.
Colloquial: A merrymaking; noisy festivity.
- /ˈdʒɑli fɪˈkeɪ ʃən/
Early 19th century, jolly + -fication.
