As you may know from my event recap last year, the Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic is one of my favorite events of the summer season! It wasn’t even a question whether I would attend again this year or not, and I managed to get Connor on board for the festivities too (but only by promising seating with FULL shade ha!). If you’ve ever considered attending, I can’t recommend it enough! Keep reading to see why this event is such a blast.
Myself, Connor, Katie (one of my favorite blogger babes!), and her boyfriend Nick got down to the ferries around 11am. I knew I wanted to be on the earlier side so that we would be able to snag the aforementioned seat with shade that I had promised Connor. Thanks to our Rosé Garden passes, we were able to skip the lines and hop right on the ferry. We made it without a minute spare, and before I knew it we were at Liberty State Park! We headed straight to the Rosé Garden so we could scope out the best seats. Since this was both Connor and Nicks first time attending, we chose a shaded table right next to the field so that
we the boys could watch the polo match. Connor and Nick headed off to grab our first bottle, and Katie and I stayed back to take a few pics and people watch. “OMG is that Lucy Hale?!?” Yep, it was!
One of my favorite additions to the event this year was the ability to purchase two additional glasses of their new champagne, Clicquot Rich. I had tried it for the first time at this event, and was blown away by how delicious it was (but I mean, would you expect anything less from Veuve?!). I went with the classic rich champagne, which was served with cucumbers for a super refreshing taste! A few other fun additions they made for the events 10th anniversary included a host – none other than Neil Patrick Harris! – and a special performance by Alicia Keys. They truly went above and beyond to make this an event to remember!
Cheers to another fabulous year at the Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic. I hope to see you there next summer! Who knows what kind of surprises will be in store for us in 2018 😉
