jīntiān tài wǎn le, míngtiān zài qù yóujú ba. Apart from implying that an action will take place again in the future, as in 请 你 再 说 一 次 qǐng nǐ zài shuō yí cì please say it again, 再 zài can also be used for  deferred action. For example, one intended to do something, but somehow did not manage it, so one will then do it another time, as in 今 天 我 们 不 能 去 喝 酒 了, 明 天 再 去 吧 jīntiān wǒmen bù néng qù hē jiǔ le, míngtiān zài qù ba. We can't go for a drink today, so we'll go tomorrow.
