No, ‘home’ isn’t the latest bar, club, or restaurant to open in town.
For one, won’t you think your crash pad the most versatile location ever? You can hold all of the above listed events at your place (well, very obviously except the foam party at The Rink), intimate gatherings and all – or best of all, do nothing at all and just cuddle at home with a loved one.
No need to brave crowds on the way home because well, you’re already there.
That sounds like the perfect plan.
