In July, Reddit user notajazzmusician asked ChatGPT to describe various parts of metro Phoenix. The fiery AI had the following to say about Scottsdale: “Home to affluent Botox enthusiasts, Scottsdale is also the place where no one ever admits their age, and their dogs’ breeders are more popular topics than world politics.”
As evidenced by the Bentley Scottsdale Polo Championships on Nov. 4, ChatGPT has a penchant for accuracy.
Held at WestWorld of Scottsdale, the event was a convergence of affluence, fashion and dogs that was both entertaining and borderline cringey.
Last year, some 12,144 fans turned out for the event, and this year was no different. Big white-top tents were packed with patrons who sipped champagne while feasting on hors d'oeuvres from Maple & Ash. The Million Dollar Mingle lounge and several others were stuffed to the gills, featuring vendor booths for Botox and tooth jewelry as well as a dizzying array of luxury cars parked on the grass.
Four polo matches also took place throughout the day. But in truth, sport was secondary to the pomp and circumstance of the event.
The day was capped off with a dance party under the stars featuring Grammy-nominated electro-funk duo Chromeo.
"One day, we will look back on the amazing Bentley Scottsdale Polo Championships, and history will show just what a contribution this ownership group and event have made to the world of polo," said Wales Polo Team player Ricky Cooper. “It is simply the best polo event in the world, pure unrivaled entertainment, a diverse and compelling social safari that brings together so much action into one day of power-packed polo promotion."
