US Open 2009!

A few of us from Vision plus my dance partner George made the trek to Flushing to see some great tennis last week in the quarterfinals: Serena vs. Flavia AND Nadal vs. Monfils! It was great to be onsite again, as many of you know that I worked on the Amex account at the US Open at a previous job, and it was exciting to be a part of such a great sporting event again. I forget how lucky we are to be so close, since many of my friends have traveled from other states to go see it.

Thanks to Steve L. for getting the tix!

p.s. don't get the shrimp crepe - disappointing! the other savory ones or the sweet crepes should be good though: )

Of course, had to go around and get freebies (I got a hat, sunscreen, yummy cookies, Greek yogurt and a photo, below: )

I'm SO excited about the semifinals match up!
