"This is one of my favourite couples to smoke up, drink down or party on sideways (does that sound weird?) with."

This appears on a backpacking blog which suggests other blogs to follow. The writer is describing a couple who runs one of these blogs, he knows them personally and this is his description.

Could you explain to me what does "party on sideways" mean?

    The writer is just (jokingly) continuing a series: smoke up , drink down and... what directions are left? – Jim Mack Nov 19 at 13:13
  • @JimMack - That's a great insight. I would have missed that. Maybe this should be an answer. It's pretty obviously correct. – chasly - supports Monica Nov 19 at 13:30

    It's part of a more vulgar expression too: **** me sideways, not meant literally, but as a corollary to smoke up (sky high) and drink down (under the table). – Weather Vane Nov 19 at 13:52
  • It's likely a stylized expression meaning "to party with" like @JimMack said, but without context it could be interpreted as having sexual intercourse. "Horizontal Mambo" by Here Come The Mummies comes to mind. – Bucket Nov 19 at 18:19
  • @WeatherVane - Or as me old da might have said, "every which way but loose" – Jim Mack Nov 19 at 18:38
