Whalebone and Graduate Hotels partnered up for a series of immersive events across the country that went hand-in-hand with the 2022 Whalebone Editorial lineup.

Experiences like a good ole fashioned comedy show, a roundtable with some better-than-good photographers, a walkabout into some of the US national parks, and ending with rhinestone denim hang in Nashville in honor of Dolly Parton.

Not exactly a seminar but the important thing was we all learned to laugh along the way—and that’s the key. A night spent with a few very talented comedians followed by a happy hour in the Panorama Room, a rooftop bar overlooking the city.
