Last Sunday marked the last Greenwich polo match of the season, and let me just say…it was an event to remember.
We arrived at our friends house to find a big, white school bus on the lawn, decked out in nautical flags and american flags. This was to be our ride with our friend Sam at the helm.
We packed the bus with tables, chairs, coolers, blankets, speakers, food, and tons of booze and set out for the match hours early to tailgate. Rolling in, we got plenty of stares but we didn’t care. It’s the last of the season – we were going out with a bang.
After the match, we went to the J House in Greenwich, where we continued to drink in the cabanas by the pool until closing time. At one point, I got pushed into the pool with my clothes and shoes on. I still can’t figure out who did it – I clearly have sneaky friends.
It was a bittersweet day, because it really marked the end of summer. It was our last night to go crazy and just enjoy the sun and our sundresses and hanging out pool-side. The next day was exceptionally cold, just adding to the feeling that this was the end of a chapter. Bring on fall!
