to gatecrash


to gatecrash
«Вламываться в ворота». Имеется в виду проходить без билета, «зайцем». Очень часто на спортивные шоу или на концерты на открытом воздухе, где собиралось много народу, можно было пройти без билета в общей толпе. Сейчас выражение to gatecrash a party означает «прийти на вечеринку без приглашения». Человек, который так поступает, называется a gatecrasher.
