Sometimes, a blast from the bast can be a very good thing. Cut to Polo, that sport of playboys and the posh-set that's got killer fashions, ridic hot dudes (Nacho Figueras anyone?), and those beautiful sleek horses. While it's not making a major comeback, you can experience the gilded age right here in NYC for a day with the third annual Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic, a super-glamorous daytime social occasion where you can dress up in your Sunday best, don a gigantic hat, and pretend you've just come over on the Titanic. The games take place on a gigantic field in the middle of Governor's Island, once the home to regular matches—which makes for a fun mini-vacation. While the tickets don't come cheap, for $250 you've got access to all the decadence, including unlimited Yellow Label champers, a custom Polo blanket, VIP ferry tickets, and an over-the-top picnic lunch from the chef behind Union Square café. Plus, if this year's anything like the last, there's a pretty good chance you can meet Prince Harry, or an Argentinian polo player, or two.
Tickets support the American Friends of Sentebale, founded by HRH Prince Henry of Wales, which aims to better the lives of the underprivileged, at-risk children of Lesotho. To purchase tickets, click here.
