<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)
