"someone to eat and drink with... "

“We should look for someone to eat and drink with before looking for something to eat and drink.” — Epicurus

This quotation points out that friendship, companionship, provides greater pleasure than food, at times. In some contexts it makes more sense to find your friends before eating. Another angle is that food itself provides more pleasure when it is shared.
