@ Delmontico Bro"s In NYC(one of the first American Restaurants), # 86 on the menu was the Delmontico Steak. This was their most popular item and was always sold out over the week-ends. Hence the term 86 became the standard in the restaurant industry for being out of an item.

To kick some one out.

Back in the old west, most whiskeys were 100 proof. However, there was generally a bottle of 86 proof that was reserved for the ladies. When a cowboy couldn't hold his liquor, or would get to rowdy, the bartender would pour him a shot of the 86 proof whiskey. The cowboy was supposed to be so embarrassed by this that he would leave the bar.
He was really drunk, so the bartender 86ed his ass.

Removing or Kicking somebody out.

Orgin: 1940's? bartender slang.

bartenders use to switch 100% proof to 86% proofs after a person got drunk. cuz the loaded person couldn't tell the differnce. and when person falls asleep at the bar they would get booted out. this would help them get more customers and save up for the more stonger and costly proofs everybody wants.

now it is used to mean to get rid of something or a person (not at bars).
haha! I saw james passed out cold outside of the bar! he been 86'ed.

you got to 86 that gold tooth man.. that shit is tacky.

<verb> to require a customer to leave; to kick someone out.

Popular in the bar and casino business.

Stems from the days when men drank 100 proof whiskey in bars while women were served 86 proof. If a man became too disruptive, the bartender made a big show about pouring the drunk a "women's drink." This usually embarassed the inebriated patron suffiently to send him for the exit -- hence today we "86" unruly customers.
1. The pit boss 86'ed the card counter, banning him from entering the casino.

2. "86 43!" = impeach the 43rd president of the USA (GW Bush)
