To add to some of the fantastic definitions, Liming is part of the culture of Trinidad and Tobago, where people come together to “lime”.
In a gathering of this nature which takes place anytime at all and every Friday evening, questions like “how is the family?” “are the kids doing well?” are not the usual subject of conversation, while it is touch upon, liming is better phrased as banter, funny replies to questions, individuals make light about politics and current social issues and even dabble on who is "horning"who, what is going on politically without it becoming a serious subject; alchoholic drinks are sometimes involved and funny replies, you say or listen to chatter on a variety of social subjects including politics that are very entertaining and relevant to the subject at hand,” picong” It is a way we live and socially accept each other. There is a "girls lime" a "boys lime" a "river lime" a "birthday lime" any kind of lime is possible. People would "lime" anytime. It is a social coming together of a posse where almost anyone is easily invited. Come lime with us!

-lime (verb), lime (noun), liming (noun)-
"lime" is a Trinidadian word, which means to socialize and hang out. A "lime" is any event where you socialize and hang out. But the fact that there is a specific *word* for socializing and hanging out emphasizes how important this activity is, gives it high priority, and makes people more prone to do it on a regular basis. "hanging out" is like something you do when you don't have any better plans, or your plans fall through: you invite someone to come over, they ask you what's going on, you might say "just hanging out", or, you were planning to go a party but plans fall through so you decide to settle for "just hanging out" instead.
In Trinidad, liming is a respectable alternative to having a barbecue, going out to a bar, partying, or seeing a movie. On a Friday night you will invite 10 people over to your house and tell them you're having a lime, and they will all show up, sit in your living room, and enjoy themselves liming all night. You don't have to entice them to come or structure the social event with a movie, games, barbecue, or plans to go out (although all of these things are liming as well). When you walk some friends back to their car after a movie or party, instead of just saying goodbye and driving home, it's completely natural for people to spontaneously decide to stand up outside their car and lime for the next couple hours (this could be called a parking lot lime). Passing the time with various weekend and evening hobbies doesn't really happen in Trinidad, because every Trinidadian's primary form of entertainment is... LIMING!
