LoL... that pretty much describes every [summer/winter] solstice gathering at my girlfriend's. Ok, the chain is: my husband=-=me=-=my girlfriend=-=her husband=-=his boyfriend=-=his wife. All but my girlfriend are introverts. What's great about their gatherings is that everyone is comfortable to be around the people for a while but every now and then, someone will just disappear into a corner by his/herself to be alone for a little bit and express their introversion... and then quietly wander back.
