Looking for bae? Right this way. This Valentine’s Day, THE STAYCATIONERS came through for every single ready to mingle at Tiki Tabu inside OG staycation hotspot, Sixty LES. Sure, IRL flirting may seem old fashioned next to the digital dating phenomenon to which we devote a good portion of our daily phone battery, but we’re here to say that there’s truly nothing better than a tête-à-tête over a glass of premium liquid courage.
What goes into the making of the chicest pre-Valentine’s Day singles mixer in all the land, you ask? Well, an Aberlour single malt whiskey (see what we did there?) tasting is definitely an essential. Behind the bar, neat pours of Westward Whiskey (our favorite American single malt) were freely flowing. And because we always go the extra mile, Marc Fisher shoes and DIY face masks courtesy of Belle Bar rounded out the #aesthetic. Lastly, with our guests’ health in mind, we even peppered in some Morning Recovery (the answer to the inevitable Saturday morning hangover) and a mocktail made with Vital Proteins to keep everyone’s collagen peptides levels in check. Efficiency is key.
Bringing people together in the name of love is as good a cause as any, but to make it even greater, all proceeds from sales are being donated to the Single Parents Resource Center. Shoutout to Stylisted for beautifying our squad (and Rebecca Minkoff for letting us play dress-up) before the big soirée!
Now without further ado, feast your eyes upon our bountiful spread of single snackery.
