Crashing a Party

I'm in Chicago, ready for my next concert. As I'm usually at this club on a Monday night with an early start time I got here when I normally do. The doors aren't going to open until 8:30 and I arrived at 6:30! (Not a bad move given Chicago traffic.) About 7 pm the place filled up. I initially thought it was a pre-show party (given this is an "album release" show). No. It turns out that I have crashed someone's birthday party. This isn't the first time, either. In 1989 I went to a concert in New Orleans on New Year's Eve. After the show a couple friends, a couple of band members, a couple of roadies, and I took off through the French Quarter. The first place we went into had food set up and drinks. We milled about for a few minutes, and those who drank got a drink. The bass player came over after a few minutes and said, "I think we're crashing a wedding reception." We left as nonchalantly as we arrived. Once outside I evaluated the situation: "anyone who has a wedding reception in the French Quarter on New Year's Eve deserves to have it crashed!" I hope they have a great birthday. I'll post about the concert when I get home tomorrow.

Crashing a party, AND seeing a show is a pretty good night.

It seems you have a certain ability to detect these parties. I wonder if you can patent it?

Haha. That's funny. You could make a career out of that.
