Speaking of Champagne, Greenwich Polo Club brings together two of its favorite traditions – Veuve Clicquot and the stomping of the divots at halftime – during the final of the Silver Cup this Sunday, July 16. Representatives of Veuve Clicquot, which will have a tent at the match, will be driving around serving Champagne as attendees take to the time-honored tradition of stomping the divots, the bits of turf kicked up by the horses’ hooves.
In addition, whoever finds the buried cork wins not one but two bottles of the bubbly, since no one found the cork last week (this despite a crowd of 3,500). And if the winner is pint-sized? Well, then he or she gets a mini mallet and ball set and the lucky parents the elixir.
So get to the match and get out on the field at halftime.
And don’t forget to stop by Jeffrey Levinson’s pop-up shop. The handbag designer will also be presenting two specially made clutches to Nathalie Carpenter and Ashley Vaness, marketing directors of polo club partners Audi and Tesla respectively.
