2015 Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic Recap

After having scheduling conflicts for the last 2 years, I was finally able to attend one of the two Veuve Clicquot Polo Classics the Champagne House hosts each year and, as promised, here is the lovely recap. Read on to get the skinny on the event details!

Veuve hosts one polo classic event each on the East coast and the West coast so that everyone who is a lover of champagne and polo can indulge themselves in partaking of these wonderful pastimes.

Well champagne sipping IS a perfectly legit pastime in my book, after all.

The Polo Classic is everything you’ve probably imagined it would be: fabulous chapeaux; dandy gents dressed in crisp collared shirts and suspenders; ladies beautifully adorned in stylish ensembles; majestic equines; glamorous celebrities; sumptuous culinary delights; and free-flowing, chilled Veuve Clicquot, all set against the backdrop of an elegant sport that’s actually quite exciting and entertaining.

And yes, I absolutely do plan to attend the event again in 2016. Perhaps as an event ambassador…are you listening Veuve Clicquot?

But I digress. Take a look at my gorgeous photo essay  that captures some the most spectacular moments from the event…and make plans of your own to attend the “lucky number” 7th edition in 2016!

    I would like to thank you for the efforts you have put in writing this website. I’m hoping the same high-grade site post from you in the upcoming as well. In fact your creative writing abilities has encouraged me to get my own web site now. Actually the blogging is spreading its wings fast. Your write up is a good example of it.

    Thanks for the concepts you reveal through this web site. In addition, several young women who seem to become pregnant tend not to even aim to get health insurance coverage because they worry they might not qualify. Although a lot of states now require that insurers give coverage despite the pre-existing conditions. Charges on these kinds of guaranteed programs are usually larger, but when with the high cost of health care bills it may be the safer approach to take to protect your financial future.
