“Where’s the after party?” You yell it once, just as the party is about to end. “Where’s the after party?” You yell it a second time just as the booze starts to run dry. “Where’s the after party?” you yell to a half-empty room just as the lights go up.
To let you down easy, there might not be one. Not everyone wants to cap off an evening of boozing with a trip to the bar. It may hurt to hear this, but the after party might just be a party of one in your apartment. Do yourself a favor and be more subtle, asking people individually if anyone is hanging out afterwards. It will keep you from becoming “that guy,” a guy nobody wants to be — or be around.
