Ca-razy Nights

Phraseology 101: ‘to paint the town red’ means to go out, drink and celebrate, to engage in a riotous spree. The expression refers to the kind of reckless behavior that results in blood being spilt.

There are several suggestions as to the origin of this idiom: one of them goes back to Marquis of Waterford, a notorious hooligan, who ran riot in the Leicestershire town of Melton Mowbray in 1837, painting the town’s toll bar and several buildings red.

So… is there any similar idiom in your native language to convey this idea?
