As most of you know, Taste the Style is home to THE STAYCATIONERS — a hotel-centric editorial series produced by a traveling troupe of bloggers, influencers, and content creators of all natures and walks of life. It’s a concept that came together in late 2014 when I met Cyndi Ramirez, our fearless leader and the founder of TTS — she asked me to come up with my own series and the rest was history. That idea was born in The Garret, so almost three years and 35+ staycations later, it seemed only fitting to host our dream slumber party in the bar’s East Side outpost, The Garret East.
There were bagels. There was bubbly. There were dozens of babely bloggers and influencers in attendance, getting mini-makeovers by the bar and dancing to a playlist made up of exclusively early 2000s hits. And last but not least, there was a massive Helix mattress outfitted in luxurious Loomstead sheets, serving as the focal point of the room and the content scene of our wildest dreams — we could think of no better way to celebrate our staycation legacy. Check out the epic photos in the slideshow above (and give @thestaycationers a follow while you’re at it).
