Painting the town red refers to staying out until dawn's early, red light colors the town red.

We're dropping all sorts of knowledge here today. Love it.

Matusz whiffs Ross for his second straight strikeout. Inning over. 4-1 Orioles heading to the bottom of the 6th.

The allusion is to the kind of unruly behaviour that results in much blood being spilt. There are several suggestions as to the origin of the phrase. The one most often repeated, especially within the walls of the Melton Mowbray Tourist Office, is a tale dating from 1837. It is said that year is when the Marquis of Waterford and a group of friends ran riot in the Leicestershire town of Melton Mowbray, painting the town's toll-bar and several buildings red.

This is off the internet for the meaning of "paint the town red". I made the other bs.
