Levantine Arabic: to be up for / down for doing something

English - UK

Hi there,

How would you say "Are you up for/down for going to the party this weekend" (in French: Tu es chaud pour aller à la fête.....?)

Would it just be: جاي على بالك تروح ع الحفلة؟
 
English (US) / Arabic (Lebanon)

In Lebanon they've started using the verb "shīl" for this exact purpose -- some (old? trad?) people don't like it though, lol. It's been in use for a few years afaik. I don't think it's entered general Levantine(?) but you could phrase this as بتشيل نروح عالحفلة آخر الأسبوع؟ or as ‏(بدنا نروح/رايحين) ع هالحفلة آخر الأسبوع، بتشيل؟
