as a verb, this word has its origins in late latin, ravo, ravere, ravivi, ravisus, and meant 'a bathhouse party' an event now reffred to as an orgy. this ancient event consisted of people lying around naked, eating lots of food, drinking plenty of wine, and freely fucking anyone you wanted. there were also often exotic dark skinned poeples brought in to play an interesting blend of drums and to dance. these parties were abandoned durring the dark ages, and, though it is not documented, it is beleived that during the renaissance, these events were once again a part of a towns night life. it is truly amazing how little these events have changed over the past 2 millenia.
amo ravere.

An all night dance party. Also the slang used by undereducated people to describe "techno" music. A rave can be anything from you and your friends partying all night to 30,000 people ravin' it up inside the arena. Theres ususally some sort of drugs or booze involved and it isn't a rave if theres no beat.
ex.1 I went to this rave and it was mint.

ex2. Last night I raved it up at my friends apartment.

An intense, techno-infused party that happens before a corporate holiday party usually in a 9'X13' office (give or take a few feet). The "rave" tends to last upwards of 30 minutes and then employees go downstairs to their scheduled corporate holiday party.
#1 : "Did you pick up the fog machine from that lady on Craiglist yet?"
#2 "No, I forgot. I'll do it this weekend."

#1 : "Ok, but don't forget. We need that fog machine. For the RAVE."

#2: "Alright."

A crappy-ass store where teen mothers buy themselves slutty clothes.
Stacey had a shirt that said "Objects under shirt are larger than they appear." She bought it from Rave, can you say slutty? (true story)
