They're giving you the opportunity again this year to enter for free on March 4th and March 5th, parking $25. It is so worth it, we never miss it. You will see qualifying rounds, the main draw ceremony, maybe your favorite player practicing on the outside courts and of course, stroll the beautiful grounds and check out the many venues, and they are impressive!
You will find food that is from local eateries and beverages you've come to love.
I always bring a table cloth, a roasted chicken from Costco, a sour dough baguette from Vons and some fruit. I don't know why, but it always tastes better when you are picnicking. And don't forget to grab a flute of Moet & Chandon to wash it down with.
And speaking about the opportunity to mix and mingle with the best tennis players in the world, on March 4th, 7:00 p.m. - 10:00 p.m., you can attend the "Citi Taste of Tennis", where local chefs serve up their specialties. The headliners include tennis star, John Isner and celebrity chef, Richard Blais. The event is located at Hyatt Regency Indian Wells Resort & Spa, poolside. If you're fans, you'll want to be there.
