Do you feel like you have to gate crash a party one of these days, just for the fun of it? It happens to all of us – occasionally. You very much want to be part of that A list party but somehow are not eligible because your name is missing on the guest list. Sometimes it is the desire to adventure that is stirring up the adrenaline in us.
Now that your name is missing, do you simply give up and miss the fun? Not really.
Below are NIFTY LITTLE TRICKS to help you gatecrash like a pro.
1. Ooze Confidence!
First things first. Before setting out to gate crash a party, refine your CONFIDENCE to the extent it never crosses your mind you could get smoked out! Martial up confidence to ensure you fit the moment.
How do you do this? Simple.
Do your research, find out everything you need to know: the theme, the dress code, and a little more about the hosts. Then make sure to look the part.
OOZE and exhibit confidence every step of the way, that Donald Trump himself will be frightened to put you down. Upload that disarming smile, and you may just get more than only handshakes! Beware though of COVID-19!
This way, you JUST may blow away and get the NODE even before a badge or whatever identification is asked of you.
Lastly on the confidence thing, be very ready to FAIL. If asked to leave, be a gentleman and walk away. Any resistance may cause a scene which will see you THROWN out dishonorably. It may even deny you a future opportunity in the neighborhood.
2. Dress the Part
Of course, this is important. Make sure to BLEND. You should be clean and presentable. Do not appear too smart or inappropriately dressed. A black suit or any matching color is good enough for a formal occasion.
If it is a casual home party, blend in by dressing smart CASUAL. Beware not to out-dress everyone else. This will make you the center of attention
You do not want to be smoked out in the middle of the fun.
3. The Name Hack
Find a way around the guest LIST. You may have to dig out the details in advance or simply use your WIT. At the entrance, be quick enough to scan the attendance list and find out the absentees. Mumble something close to a name that is not TICKED and pick it up the minute you are sure.
Beware of popular names in the party. You will just earn yourself a ticket OUT if you pick up the name of the GUEST speaker, that has not arrived -but who is known to everyone but you.
Secondly, use the surname of the HOST with confidence OOZING out. Pretend you know them and make sure to have a little background in your
4. Carry a Drink to Gate Crash a Party
Yes. If somehow you have a CLUE about the brands of drinks going around, carry one in the hand as you whisk yourself through the entrance. It should not be a cheap one. Champagne or some relevant liquor will do the trick.
Make sure it is well packaged and visible as you make your GRAND entrance.
5. The Waiter Bait
OOPS! If it is all that is available in your TRICK hacks, in order to gate crash a party why not give it a go! Chances of getting bounced are so minimal since very few ever consider this. Make sure to do your research in advance and pick out the right attire. The colors are usually black and white.
Excuse your self for arriving late as you fidget around with the B. tie. Chances are 99% you will be shown the way inside.
Find your way to the washroom and dress accordingly, hoping you had this planned out too. Or else you will end up serving everyone else!
6. The Back Door
Every party house has a backdoor. ALL. Get into the habit of staying in the know about these little secrets. The difference being, some may involve climbing fences. You may also want to carry a screwdriver with you, just in case! Make sure not to make an entrance with a SOILED or TORN shirt!
7. Get Invited
Yes. If all fails, try hard to get yourself invited officially. If it means hacking into the computer to key in your name, why not? But again, what’s the fun? Nothing beats the feeling of getting your adrenaline running wild.
Stay in The Loop
Once inside, blend and don’t get caught. Stay in the loop. Have manners and don’t overdrink, lest you make a fool of yourself. Then you will have gate-crashed the party like a pro. Otherwise, your EJECTION could be a little nasty!
