Drinking - Ordering at a Table

If you are sitting at a table in a bar, a server will come up and ask you what you want.  They can ask in multiple ways, but the most common are the following.

"What can I get you guys?"
"What can I get you?"
"What would you like today?"
"What will it be?"
"What do you guys want today?"

Other things you can ask is if there are any specials.

"Are there any specials today?"

If they do, they will probably tell you the drink and the price that is on special.  Here is an example.

"All our margaritas are $2.50, and well drinks are $2.00."
"Every Monday we have pitchers for $5.00."

If you are having pints or shots or some other drink, and you want to get one more for everyone, you can say to the server that you want one more round.

"Can we get one more round?"

They will respond by saying, 'Same thing?' or 'Four Coronas again?'

When you are sitting with your friends to drink, mostly you just talk and drink.  But if somebody is getting low on a drink, you can offer to buy another one.  Another situation is if someone buys you a drink, you want to say that you will buy the next round.  Here are some examples.

"I'm going to get another drink.  Do you want one?"
"Let me buy you a drink."
"Thanks.  I'll get the next round."
