So yesterday Nadine, Lindsay and I went to the Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic Los Angeles. For those of you who don’t know, Nadine is somewhat of a polo expert and when I heard about this (free) event, I was super excited and even more excited to go with someone who can actually explain what’s going on to me. Before yesterday my knowledge of polo came from “Pretty Woman” as a result of the one scene where Julia Roberts and Richard Gere go to a polo match and they stomp the divets while Julia wears a perfectly 90s brown dress with white polka dots. I imagined a similar scene…minus the polka dot brown dress, obvs.
The match was in the Pacific Palisades, which, I never even knew existed. Amazing. I love when that happens. It’s this like magical little town at the top of a mountain in Santa Monica…who knew? Anywho, we had to wait a bit at Will Rogers Beach for the shuttles to get us and bring us up to the match since there wasn’t enough parking at the top of the hill. Nadine and I went right for the champers as soon as we got inside and sat under the lovely Veuve Clicquot umbrellas to watch the match.
I have to admit, I still don’t know much about polo but I do know that I support any sport with hot men, horses and daytime drinking. You can come to expect more stories from my adventures in polo sometime in the near future.
