Hi, native speakers of English!

Can someone explain what the expression "It's five o'clock somewhere" means?

I think it has something to do with drinking, or partying, or something like that, but some explanation and some examples would come in handy.

Thank you in advance.

    People (in most of the US, at least) do not drink untiil after work, and work often ends at around 5:00 PM. But if they do, for some special reason, drink earlier in the day, they often justify it by using your phrase.
