On Saturday July 24th 2010, I had the distinct pleasure of attending the opening weekend festivities of Bridgehampton Polo. The day was filled with great moments for me. I felt like I was on a natural high the entire day. Growing up in the inner city I never imagined owning a moment like this in such a posh setting.
Bridgehampton Polo attracts la creme de la creme’ of the Hamptons Summer socialite season, and this opening weekend didn’t disappoint. Plenty of celebrities in the house too.
Kourtney Kardashian, Chris Bosh of the Miami Heat, the cast of Real Housewives Of New York and Real Housewives Of New Jersey and many more were in attendance.
Our RSVP came with entry to the hospitality tent that greeted us with Patron Tequila cocktails, Ultimat Vodka cocktails, Zino Cigars, hors d’oeuvres and more. Sponsors included Mercedes-Benz, Coca-Cola, Patron Tequila, Blue Star Jets, Polo Ralph Lauren, and Swagg.
It was surreal watching my first polo match in person. It’s an experience unto itself watching those beautifully manicured horses charge up and down the field.
A personal highlight of mine was meeting Amber Rose. She even is more stunning in person; cigarette in her mouth and all. Amber worked the tent and just drew attention everywhere she went. A true presence.
As Bridgehampton Polo closed out around 6:45pm, I felt like the party just began. But all good things must come to end right? Nonetheless Bridgehampton Polo was one of my biggest social highlights for the Summer. Hopefully I’ll see you at week 2.Pin It
