I like the finer things in life. When sitting down for a meal, I’ll choose the crabcake eggs benedict over the regular eggs benedict. When I’m ordering at a coffee shop, I get an Americano because it sounds classier than just ordering some brewed coffee. And when I’m shopping for wine, I buy it from the second shelf instead of the bottom of the shelf just so people won’t think I’m a peasant trying to get a buzz on.
But you have to draw a line somewhere. You can’t just be walking through life being an uppity douchebag and think you can get away with it, which is exactly what’s happening in Palm Beach at this Polo Brunch event, as reported by The Toronto Sun.
Sunday brunch at the International Polo Club Palm Beach is one of the most unexpected surprises visitors to the area can have. Full disclosure: The brunch isn’t cheap (it’ll run you $120 US per-person for March and April), but there’s more than enough food to fill you up for the day and you get to watch the match.
Food selections include an omelette station, pizza station, Oysters Rockefeller, Beef Wellington, fresh fish, a salad bar that goes on for days, ice-cream bar and much more. Seating is out on the Lilly Pulitzer Patio, where you get an up-close look at the polo match (just no standing please). And the price includes two drink tokens with the champagne provided by Veuve Clicquot, so yeah — this ain’t no flip flop breakfast.
If someone’s covering the cost for me, yeah, I’m doing this a million times out of a million times. But you won’t find me shelling out $120 of my hard-earned dollars to eat buffet style and sip on a few flutes of champagne out of a $49-per-bottle of Veuve. I get it — there’s a polo match going on, but 1. I won’t have any idea what’s going on in it, and 2. I’ll be trying to socialize the entire time with a bunch of people who went to a boarding school that I’ve never even heard of.
But, like, seriously… if they want to throw a casual sponsorship or media pass my way, I’m not turning it down. .
