Not all of us are night owls. In fact, some people prefer to get there day party on so they can make sure they get to work the next day. Then of course there's the partying purists who take disco naps to ensure they don't come home before dawn.

Where do you fall?

Which do you prefer: a well-rested daytime party session or a debauched all-nighter? Two old white men wearing bow ties weigh in on the issue.


It’s scientific frickin’ fact that anyone experiencing Europe’s longer clubbing hours has returned home despondently kicking a tin can at the thought of going back to banal nighttime-only parties. Made in the shade? Not likely, dork—once you see the light you’ll realize that it’s way cooler and also kind of badass to party all day and return home surrounded by normals locked into a routine drudge of work and family. Meanwhile, you’re riding low with shades on and clothes stained with drying sweat. Bad. Ass.

Imagine: It’s TGIFriday, 6 p.m. You’re so sucked into a standard rhythm that maybe you have the energy to eat food with a friend or a date, but you know the most that’s going to happen is watching a lil Netflix and passing out from a week’s worth of what-am-I-doing-with-my-life. Guess what? You’re old and that’s how it goes if you want money and don’t have ideas. But while everyone else is out woo!-ing to EDM, you’re sleeping sweetly and prepping your person for pumpy bass at the cool parties—the day ones, where weekend warriors never tread. You wake up at the crack of noon, have a little brunch, and you’re at peak power. No need to push yourself—instead of running errands, you’re running to the club.



Holi celebrations. Yoga raves. Spring break blowouts with tight teen bods. Massive multi-day festivals with long lines for food and rank port-a-loos. Here’s what all these events have in common: they are all daytime parties that lack all of the elements that make going out fun. And they all suck.
