Slicking up to them nines

Posted by Beerbelly on February 17, 2003

I remember my grandfather said that once. I always thought he was doing something on the sly.
Someone told me recently that it ment to get drunk. But the way my grandfather used it didn't seem like that.
I don't remember the context he used it in though.
Anyone know what this term means?
