Head to Portsmouth this Saturday for two unique summer specials. First, if you haven’t checked out a Polo Match, hosted by the Newport International Polo Series, it is a must. The USA versus Brazil match starts at 5:00pm, but get there early to relax in the sun and tailgate! Bring a picnic and your beverage of choice, and cheer on the team! A New England Lobster Bake will follow the match!
If stomping the divots isn’t your thing, then head to the Greenvale Vineyards for Live Jazz Saturdays. From 1:00pm-4:00pm, enjoy a glass (or two) of wine, and listen to the live music. Greenvale Vineyard offers fantastic wine, and a great atmosphere for a sunny summer afternoon. Admission is $3, and tastings are $12 (Wine is also sold by the glass).
