Once a year, New Yorkers get a taste of the good life — in the truly European sense. Sundress-and-polo-shirt-clad city folk descend on Liberty State Park to sip Veuve Clicquot, take in gorgeous skyline views, and munch on delicacies while they watch Nacho Figueras bound around on a horse. Doesn't sound half bad, right?
Well, now you've got your chance to join the champagne-soaked fun! Tickets for this year's Polo Classic go on sale today — $40 gets you a scenic ferry ride, entrance to the event, and the chance to rub elbows with A-listers (past attendees have included Hugh Jackman, Kate Hudson, and Rachel Zoe). Plus, event fees will go to support Liberty State Park, which sustained substantial damage during last October's hurricane. Now, to find the perfect floppy hat...
When: Saturday, June 1, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Where: Liberty State Park, New Jersey; no phone.
