The meaning of "Town" in various phrases and sentences

Q: O que significa “paint the town beige” in 169?
A: This is a joke or maybe poetry. It is certainly a metaphor.

"paint the town red" = "go out at night and have a lot of fun, going to bars and generally making noise or mischief, having a lot of excitement"

Red is a bright and loud color. Beige is a softer and quieter color. It is more boring. So "paint the town beige" = "go out at night, but don't do anything interesting". Beige is a neutral color, so it can also mean "go out at night, doing only the same thing that we usually do when we go out, and nothing special."
