person2: Nah I got a invited to a nachspiel!
From German, meaning "nightplay", and is a kind of party after the party. Involves the people who don't want to go home after the bars close, bad alcohol (usually some leftovers from the foreplay) and a guitar-playing guy on the couch. After an hour or two it involves puke, complains from the neighbours and drunk people sleeping around the apartement.
We can't go home now, let's go to Fred's, he's having a nachspiel
