Assunto:  to raise hell?
 
Mensagem:  And the context???

(1) to party, drink, dance, carouse, chance women, etc.

(2) to scold severely (something like "dar uma bronca")

My wife raised hell with me (scolded) for raising hell (drinking) with the boys.  She told me she would leave me if I ever got drunk and rowdy again, but my buddies and I were just having fun when things got out of hand.
