Whatever with Alexis and Jennifer, September 2010
Mike Albo has perfected the art of partying. Here, he shares his best party-behavior tactics.
Party Behavior 101
- Go early: If you know the host well, this is a great way to put the party planner at ease. You can help with last-minute details or occupy another guest who showed up early and maybe doesn't know the host so well.
- The French good-bye: If you must leave early, sometimes it's best to slip out unnoticed.
- Exit before the exodus: There's always a point when everyone starts putting on their coats. The best time to leave a party is just before that moment.
- If you really don't want to go to the party but already said you would, prepare a foolproof excuse. Children make excellent excuses, Mike says. As do digestive ailments.
