7 Ways to Celebrate the Olympics Stateside

SAN DIEGO (TheStreet) -- So you've got Olympic fever but don't have a ticket to Sochi?

All is not lost.

For those who can't be in the front row in Russia for the snowboarding, slopestyle or figure skating there are plenty of activities taking place across the U.S. during the next few weeks letting you celebrate the Olympics in high style.

From coast to coast, hotels, restaurants, resorts and bars are offering their own quirky and luxurious ways to take part in Olympic-themed fun. Whether it's curling, eating a deluxe Russian meal or sipping a pricey Russian-inspired drink, there's something for almost everyone.

Let Winter Games (and stateside festivities) begin.

"Gold Medal" Luxury Olympic Adventure Package, Hyatt Escala Lodge, Park City, Utah

For athletic types, the Hyatt Escala Lodge has created a Gold Medal package that includes pampering, participating in winter sports and even professional training. The three-night getaway includes such things as sports massages for two, lift tickets at Canyons Resort, a heli-skiing experience, one-day passes to Olympic Legacy Park to train with the pros and an Olympian buffet breakfast each morning.

All of this sporty Olympic fun does not come cheap. The package, available until March 1, costs $5,000.

Olympic Sushi, The Westin Beach Resort & Spa, Fort Lauderdale, Fla.

Who knew eating is a way to express your Olympic support?

For the less athletically inclined Olympic enthusiast, there's the option of ordering the Team USA Roll at Amatsu Sushi & Sake at The Westin Beach Resort & Spa in Fort Lauderdale. The $18 roll is stuffed with shrimp tempura, scallions and spicy mayo and topped with white escolar, tuna and avocado.

The restaurant is also offering an Olympic Sushi special that includes five California rolls in the shape of Olympic Rings, each with a different topping -- avocado, mango, black tobiko, red tobiko and wasabi tobiko.

The Olympic sushi will be available through Feb. 23.

Russian Team Time, The St. Regis, Atlanta

Here's yet another non-athletic way to feel closer to the events taking place in Sochi: Russian Tea Time.

The St. Regis Atlanta is offering this Russian ritual throughout February in honor of the 2014 Winter Games.

And the appropriately Russian-sounding menu includes Chicken Dijon Piroshky, Potato and Cheese Pazharski, Rugalach, Korzinki and Russian Tea Cookies.

Russian Tea Time will take place every afternoon this month from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m. The cost for this elegant Olympic celebration option is $48 per person or $52 per person with a glass of champagne.
