"Go with a swing" nghĩa là gì?

'To go with a swing' nghĩa là (một sự kiện, bữa tiệc) rất sôi nổi, vui vẻ và thành công (mỹ mãn) (if an event, especially a party, goes with a swing, it is very exciting and successful).

Ví dụ
William Potter and three pals dined out on scallops (con điệp), beef fillet (thịt bê cuốn), lamb shanks (đùi cừu) and cod (cá tuyết). Then they ordered desserts and helped to wash the whole lot down with two bottles of Dom Perignon champagne - at £148.40 a bottle. An Italian pinot grigio at £23.50 and two bottles of £35 rioja were also selected from the wine list to help the evening go with a swing.

A MUSICIAN has picked up a national gong (cái cồng) for helping weddings go with a swing: Geoff Walker, from Hetton, attended a glittering (lộng lẫy) ceremony at Cafe De Paris in London to collect a coveted (thèm thuồng) National Wedding Industry Award. He, and funk soul band Ambassador, beat stiff competition from across the country to win the award for the most highly-commended band in the UK.

Tiger Woods is back – but will it go with a swing? With a new coach and claims of fitness restored, Woods makes his first appearance since August at his own event in Florida this week. However, writes Kevin Garside, doubts over his age and form will not go away.

Katie Cowell wrote to the star, who is soon to open one of his Jamie’s Italian restaurants in the city, asking him to help make her dad Chris’s birthday memorable (đáng nhớ). Jamie immediately sent a signed copy of his latest book Comfort Food with a dedication to the family. Jessica Macan, a volunteer with Hospiscare, who take care of Chris at the West Clyst home, picked out a recipe for an indulgent (nuông chiều) chocolate cake to help the party go with a swing.

Are you a realist?

The pessimist complains about the wind; the optimist expects it to change; the realist adjusts the sails.
