of design and creativity
Last month I was sitting at my desk at work thinking about what I would have for lunch when I got a notice on my phone that someone that I follow on Instagram was "live". I grabbed my phone and began scrolling and was immediately sucked into looking at pictures of people at the beach, friends that have moved to LA enjoying their new life and numerous images of palm trees. Just as I was beginning to get a heavy case of FOMO I scrolled down to Refinery29s feed where they announced that tickets for #29rooms were now on sale. There was no way I was going to miss this event. I didn't hesitate to buy my ticket. Hence my FOMO was cured!
Here are a few things you things you need to know when attending 29rooms.
3. Bring a friend
With all the amazing attractions and things to interact with, you really want to be able to take a few pictures of yourself that are instagram worthy. If you go alone, there are some volunteer workers that are around to take your picture but ideally, you'll want to bring a friend along that likes to take pictures and has the patience to get your every angle or boomarang that you need.
1. Get there early
2. Wear comfortable shoes
On your ticket there is a time given to you to enter but will be a line outside the building to get in. Getting there early will guarantee that you enter the time you were given. Arriving on time isn't the end of the world, the line moves pretty fast and the people that check you in help move things along.
Once inside there are more lines to go into each room. I hate waiting in lines period so I can't imagine what I would have done if I was also wearing heels. I wore my adidas sneakers Depending on what time you get there I believe determines how long you will be waiting. I was there towards the later part of the evening so I was waiting and waiting and waiting.
4. Eat before you enter
There is not a thing to eat at this event so make sure to grab a bite to eat before you go. I made the mistake of not getting anything to eat before I entered so before I knew it 3 hours had passed and I was hangry! My body wouldn't allow me to stay any longer so I didn't get to experince everything I would have liked. The lines at this point were longer then before and I needed to eat. I called my ass and uber and stopped by a pizza shop before going home.
