Let’s set the scene for a second: Imagine it’s 9:45 p.m. at your friend’s wedding, and you and your friends have just found your groove on the dance floor. After a night of mingling with cousins, aunts, uncles, and the obligatory exchanging of pleasantries with people you've just met, you’re ready to get the party started. And then, the DJ announces that the bar's about to close.
