Sony Ericsson Open: Food Is Better Than Tennis (Photos)

The Sony Ericsson runs through April 1 at the Crandon Park Tennis Center in Key Biscayne, bringing with it painful traffic jams, celebrity athletes, and a lot of people in it for the oversize tennis balls and Bombay Sapphire Lounge.

Every year, as we stroll the village that takes two months to set up (and one month to break down), we watch tens of thousands of people shopping for visors and sipping champagne, and we ask ourselves: How many people are here for the tennis?

Not that it matters. We have to admit we love hanging out at the various food and drink venues set up for the open. After all, the Super Bowl might be the biggest sporting event in the world, but does it have a Veuve Clicquot lounge, complete with sushi bar? We rest our case.
