שלום!

When asking someone "What are you doing on Saturday night?" why do people say "מה אתה עושה במוצאי שבת?" instead of "מה אתה עושה ביום שבת בערב?"?

After all, they always say "מה אתה עושה ביום שישי בערב?", I think.

תודה!

    מוצאי שבת means Saturday night after Shabbat has ended (which is after sunset). It would be weird to say ביום שבת בערב because Shabbat is over already after sunset.
