Equestrians & Oenophiles on Sunday: Houston Polo Club & BYOB @ Bellissimo's!

Hi Wine & Food Lovers,

Join us for a fun and exhilarating afternoon at the polo club! You've gotta love the sight of those beautiful sweaty steeds chasing the ball! Yes, I'm talking about the horses! It's really a fun afternoon and at half time we'll get to stomp the divots and drink champagne. They do have wine for sale at the event, but I will say it's mediocre and overpriced - make sure you bring a nice bottle to look forward to at dinner afterward! Ladies, your're welcome to dress up a bit, and if you'd like, wear a hat -it's the thing to do at the polo match! Of course you don't have to wear one, it's completely up to you, although I plan to!

Tickets are $20 per person: http://thehoustonpoloclub.com/tickets/general-admission-tickets?page=shop.browse&category_id=1

BTW, there is plenty of parking and the parking is free.

The game lasts about 2 hours, and afterwards, we'll be heading to Bellissimo in The Heights with a bottle of wine in hand for wining & dining. The cork fee is $10. They also have wine available for purchase at the restaurant, but remember that wine is marked up several times on a restaurant menu, plus if you bring your own in, in will be the wine YOU chose.

Those of you who want to dine with us at Bellissimo after the polo event on Sunday 4/21, please paypal a $10 per person deposit, so that I can be sure you will be there. Please do that by Friday, 4/19. I won't post any of the paypals, unless you are a no show! Those of you who don't show, I'll put your noshow dollars into a group "party fund". After we dine, I'll refund all the paypal deposits of the wine lovers who are at the restaurant!

I'm just doing this because it's no fun to make a big dinner reservation, and then get the "stinky eye" from the management when peeps don't show up for whatever reason.

Bellissimo is located about 10 minutes from the site of the polo grounds in The Heights area at 1848 Airline Drive. http://bellissimohouston.com

      Hi LaShaqbriel, there was a ticketing problem, so that's why we weren't there. I sent an email when I found out about the problem on Saturday evening. So sorry you didn't receive it. We are going to try for another game, now that I've resolved the problem! Stay tuned....sorry to miss you at dinner!

    The group generally sits on the side with the parking field (opposite the box seats).

    April 21, 2013

  • LaShabriel K.

    Which side are you sitting?

    will not be able to make it to dinner after all sorry guys see all of you soon

    Brett - the $10 is just to reserve your spot at the dinner. The tickets for the polo club are $20 general admission but they are sold out for today, unless you want to pay $300 for a box seat!

    will only be attending the dinner since the event is sold out. also the polo grounds are private property this isnt public event i dont know where some of our members got that idea its clearly maked when you enter the grounds that its private property and there is not trespassing in enforce perhaps you should insecure the group doesnt get kicked out by letting those in the group who feel that they want to challenge the tickets sold out issue and try to come in might be endangering the entire group from coming back again to enjoy the fun

    Still out of town. Have fun!

  • Michael K.

    Sorry, meant to say DEEanna!

    April 20, 2013

  • Michael K.

    Deanna, can I still attend the polo match only with a guest even though it appears this filled? After all, this is a public event and I can't imagine the Houston polo club would turn us away.

    I just went on line and they accepted my credit card for $10. Guess I will see you there. Brett

    Oh too bad, there's no tickets left. I was really looking forward to this too but didn't realize how popular it was. Sorry but won't be able to make dinner now as a bit far to go just for dinner on a Sunday evening. Next time!

    March 24, 2013
