In The Irishman (2019), Jake asks Jimmy a bridge loan:

Jake: I got the first topless act on the Strip. I'm telling you, we're booming in there. I can't get the drinks out...Just asking for a golf course.

What's the meaning of "I can't get the drinks out"?


It's an abbreviated sentence.

What he's trying to say is...

I can't get the drinks out fast enough to satisfy the demand.

Essentially he's saying that the place is incredibly successful.
