I took 1/2 of the daily dose the past 2 days, and those are the only times I've had it.The biological half life of it is 23 hours so should I be fine?

I only had 1 pill yesterday, and every website only talks about you drinking while taking it but not drinking after
No - it's really best not to drink at all while on Nabumetone. Alcohol can cause, or increase, side-effects such as dizziness and drowsiness; and if you have other health concerns, take certain other medications or supplements then these are also factors to be considered by a healthcare professional.
A much greater concern is the risk of ulcers or bleeding already inherent from any nabumetone use. These risks increase if you are taking it in high doses, for a long period of time, you smoke cigarettes, or you drink alcohol. Plus, long term drinking or binging on alcohol can take a toll on the internal body without showing external signs until much later, meaning prior alcohol use should also be considered.
It's important to know that eating when taking nabumetone does not reduce risk of these side effects.
