pre-party (2)

verb; compounding
to drink and socialize at a smaller gathering before moving on to a larger party.
 
Probably used primarily in colleges since large parties are the main social events.
Etymology : Pre is from Latin prae, 'before'. Party is from Old French partir, 'to divide'. The sense 'social gathering' first developed in the eighteenth century.
