Kick-Off Party for First Chicago Beach Polo World Cup and Events Schedule

The first polo matches to ever be played on a Chicago beach will be stirring up excitement from September 30th--October 2nd when the Chicago Beach Polo World Cup comes to town!  The recent Kick-Off party at Union Sushi & Barbeque Bar attracted over 400 guests with a line snaking down the block waiting to mix and mingle with the horsey set.  Held first in 2003 on Miami Beach, this event will, hopefully, become an annual attraction here in Chicago.  Check out these cool pics from the Kick-Off Party and the Miami event by photographer Bob Milkovich.   (For tickets and more info, please visit
