Going for a walk around the bar/club in an attempt to situate yourself, check out points of interests, and scope out where all the attractive people are.
Yo dude, wanna grab a beer and take a lap? I saw this really hot girl in a tight dress in the corner by the mini bar when we walked in.
Yo man, where's George at?
I don't know dude. I think he went to do a lap with Scott.
After taking a lap, Mike was able to tell Ashley where the bathrooms and mini bars were.
