NEWPORT -- Watching the pros run around the court at the International Tennis Hall of Fame Open can really work up an appetite.

Luckily, the International Tennis Hall of Fame has a number of food and drink options available on site.

There are three Russell Morin concession areas with varying options at each including standard cheeseburgers and hot dogs in addition to options like a shrimp quinoa bowl and grilled mozzarella, tomato and basil pizza.

Newport Craft has the drinks covered with a bar in view no matter where you're standing. There, you can pick up any of the Newport Craft beers, like the Rhode Trip IPA, a number of wines including a canned rosé, any of Newport Craft's canned cocktails like the Vodka Collins or Newport Stormy, or Newport Craft's Thomas Tew, vodka or gin.

Also on the sidelines are Del's Lemonade, Ben & Jerry's and Inpopnito which is serving up popcorn flavors like Newport cheddar, buffalo breath and Rhode Island coffee milk.

But if that's not exactly what you're looking for, La Forge Casino Restaurant is taking full advantage of having the Van Allen Cup competition directly in its backyard. In addition to featuring a special lunch and dinner menu this week, there are a variety of tennis-themed drinks.

There's the McEnroe Mule, a take on a Moscow mule inspired by retired tennis player John McEnroe, the Volley featuring bourbon, mint and simple syrup, and the Match Point Margarita with tequila and muddled strawberries, in addition to other choices like the Cross Court Old Fashioned, Hall of Fame Mojito, Sideline Sangria and Honey Deuce.
