Remember, you wouldn't be crashing if you didn't want to get something—free booze, a hot date, a bitchen guacamole recipe—out of it. So once you've crashed, work it to your advantage. "The best part of crashing is when you're drunk and bonding with someone at the end of the night," says Elise. "Then you can let it out: 'So, I have to tell you . . . I don't really know anyone here. . . . Wanna make out?'" Works every time.
