How to leave a party.
1. “Accidentally” call an Uber and then dash out because it would be rude to leave your driver waiting in the cold. 2. Think up a code word (not recommended: “mayday,” “operation ghost” or “let’s bail”) for you and the person you came with to use when you need to leave ASAP. 3. Bring a really expensive bottle of wine, make a big spectacle of opening it, volunteer to get a corkscrew from the kitchen... and then disappear out the back door. ...and how to get people to leave your party.
1. Slowly remove furniture from the room; as the night wears on, the footsore, the weary and the punch over-indulgers will have nowhere to go but home.
2. Tell everyone Drake lives in your building and his annual open house on the roof starts in 5. You’ll be right behind them... not.
3. Start playing your wedding video on the big screen.
