The US Open, the most boisterous of the Grand Slams, is best enjoyed in a crowd. Cheer on Andy Roddick (happy belated birthday!), Roger Federer, Melanie Oudin, Kim Clijsters and Venus Williams (and comment on their tennis fashion) at a viewing party. Here''s one to get you gonig. Morgan's on Maxwell is hosting US Open viewing parties all tournament long with time2playtennis.com. The party starts week nights at 7pm and weekends at noon.
