You don’t need to be a huge fan or an expert to enjoy polo. The people-watching opportunities are endless, thanks to fancy outfits and a steady supply of frou-frou drinks. Plus, most polo players are pretty hot. Just look at Facundo Pieres, Nacho Figueras, and Louise Sanberg. The Fourth Annual Bentley Scottsdale Polo Championships are just around the corner, so Stacy’s on Melrose is celebrating with a polo preview party. Fans can rub elbows with Phoenix’s Gay Polo League and its captain, Chip McKenney, for an evening of equine extravagance. Not familiar with polo? No problem, the event includes a presentation on the history of the sport and the swanky Scottsdale championships.
Place your bets on Monday, September 8, at Stacy’s on Melrose, 4343 North Seventh Avenue, from 6 to 8 p.m. Admission is free to the 18-and-over event. Call 602-264-1700 or visit www.gaypolo.com for more information.
