"Pre-gaming" is an art form.
With the right drinks on deck, a proper pre-game can take a night to another level. With that being said, poor timing and crappy drinks could ruin the evening as well. In the art of partying, the pre-game set up is just as important party you attend after the pre-game.
Apparently three students at Stanford feel the same way as I do, and have created an algorithm to find the best time to start pregaming.
The video above is a excel presentation on "the art of pre-gaming."
The breakdown is AMAZING. I love how detailed the guys are, taking all elements into account to create the ultimate party experience.
Do what you want with the information. Personally, I will put this theory to the test this weekend!
