This year Valencia's arepas and Orangeside's square doughnuts happily collide with professional tennis at the Connecticut Open, the Women's Tennis Association tennis tournament held each August at the Connecticut Tennis Center at Yale in New Haven from August 15 - 23, 2015.
Tennis fans can rejoice as some of Connecticut's most beloved food trucks will be represented within the revamped food court featuring local businesses including the Valencia Luncheria truck, Caseus's Cheese Truck, La Petite France, Tony’s Orangeside Donuts, Spuds Your Way, and The Lobster Shack. The tournament has also installed the new Baseline Tap House, a beer garden presented by Goose Island Beer Company, which will feature a selection of craft beers from Connecticut and beyond including Stoney Creek IPA & Amber Ale, Thomas Hooker Blonde, Spiked Seltzer, Bluepoint Bluberry, and Grey Sail Flagship Ale.
As a lifelong fan of professional tennis, my home state of Connecticut, and of course, its food, I am especially excited about this year's tournament and wish the tournament great success with its new owner, the State of Connecticut, and congratulate it on its move to welcome Connecticut-owned businesses onto its home court. See you next week!
