Verb a.k.a. "Tonkin'": To get shit-house drunk on cheap beer (usually PBR or Busch Light) and head into the local bars looking for trouble. A good night of Tonkin' generally includes, but is not limited to, (1) discharging a firearm at the moon, (2) having to leave somewhere before the police arrive, and (3) waking up the next morning next to a particularly unattractive woman. Although the word's etymology is southern, Honky Tonkin' has been observed as far north as Grand Marais, MN.
