Veuve Clicquot Annual Polo Tourney at Will Rogers in the Palisades (Sunday, October 9) – Invited guests are welcomed into a tent with couches and champagne where some of the world’s most interesting polo players come and mingle between ‘chukkers’ (aka timed periods of play, like an inning). In true Will Rogers spirit, who hosts regular club polo matches on the weekends most of the year, anyone wanting to attend is welcome – Veuve Clicquot will provide picnic style blankets and umbrellas, some bleacher seating, photo booths, food trucks and tented areas where they will sell flutes and bottles of champagne, sun hats and other paraphernalia.
