English term or phrase: I can hold my liquor, but my hors d'oeuvres?
Does it mean something particular? I is in here.


Yeah, I answered that stupid ad and showed up to the cocktail party dressed to kill. In a dress, you moron. I didn't get this nearly-naked stocking until after the party. Look, I can hold my liquor, but my hors d'oeuvres? That's another story. One bad weenie and pow! Out like a light. When I wake up, that's all I can remember: the party and the ad. Nocturnal missions indeed. If I had known I was going to have to knock off the heads of industrialized states, I wouldn't have worn heels.

Explanation:
Il contesto aiuta molto; weenie allora e' il wurstel, con cui si fanno diversi antipasti in America. "Basta un wurstel e crollo, come un ciocco. E quando mi sveglio ricordo solo la festa..."

senti, posso trattenere le bevande, ma le pietanze?


Explanation:
forse si può tradurre meglio, ma ho l'impressione che parli del riuscire a trattenere i liquidi, ma che possa scoppiare un bisogno irrefrenabile di andare in bagno. Questa è l'impressione che ho, think about it!
