Look, when it comes to the US Open tennis tournament, you can read all you want about the high purse ($44 million total) and who might walk away victorious (Djokovic FTW?).
Or you can actually attend the Open in person (August 31 to September 13).
Picture this: Strolling the grounds, you might pop into a Polo Ralph Lauren boutique, or sit down for some really good yellowtail sashimi.
Then you’ll settle in to watch the world’s best players face off with warrior intensity. (Pro tip: Do not sit down without the signature tournament drink--the Grey Goose "Honey Deuce" made with fresh lemonade.) Everyone’s anxious to see if Serena Williams can make history with a fourth Grand Slam title in a single calendar year and if tennis legends Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal will finally battle it out in New York.
Buy some tickets (day passes start at $70) and catch the 7 train to the grounds, because there’s no substitute for--or bragging rights like--your own seat at the US Open..
