Ladies Day: BB&T Atlanta Open Edition

What a treat last Thursday was for myself and three lucky bloggers at the BB&T Atlanta Open! We started the day with brunch at Strip at Atlantic Station. Endless steak kabobs, spinach and crab dip, hummus with warm pita bread, fresh fruit and much more!  

After diving into our plates (we are part food bloggers, keep this in mind), the special guests of the hour Mike and Bob Bryan were greeted with cheers and applause as they entered the VIP brunch. Wayne Bryan, the Bryan's father (who's the character), hyped up the room for a Q&A! I knew I wanted to ask the dynamic duo about their diet and how they find a balance traveling from city to city. Mike was quick to chime in noting that he has been gluten and dairy-free the last decade! Bob laughed and said he was much more laid back, but that they both nix out sugar majority of the time. I found it super intriguing, because I have recently started to lessen my dairy intake, and have noticed a huge difference in my energy when I do. Because of my "really good" question, Wayne presented me with a poster which the brothers both autographed!

After the Q&A with the guys, we all took a group shot with them! A few of us (Erica of Eating with Erica) even got a selfie with the top double players in the world!

After brunch, it was off to watch an afternoon of tennis in the new North Suite! This section was added this year and provides fans with a great view. Being that it was Ladies Day, we were treated like royalty! Each ticket came with brunch, an afternoon of tennis and four drink vouchers! If you haven't noticed, rosé and I have a thing. After nestling into our seats, our bartender for the afternoon came by and asked what we would all like to drink. Rosé, s'il vous plaît!

What a fun afternoon with my blogger girls and new friends! Update: The Bryan bros went on to win their BB&T Atlanta Open debut! Look forward to seeing them back here next year.
