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.

Sochi Savings Time, Waldorf Astoria, New York City

Frank Caiafa was so inspired by the 2014 Winter Olympics he developed a special cocktail in honor of the games.

Called Sochi Savings Time, the $19 cocktail is made with Russian Standard Vodka, Maurin Quina Apertif and Combier Kummel Liqueur.

"I wanted to create something that reflected the geographic area," says Caifa, house mixologist for the legendary Peacock Alley at the Waldorf Astoria. "This drink has a very interesting taste and it has that 'what is it' factor that most great drinks have from the layers of flavor."

"Go for Gold" Cocktail, Ritz-Carlton, Los Angeles

And not to be outdone, West Coast Olympic enthusiasts can also celebrate the Olympics with a specially created drink. Angelenos have the option of drinking 24-carat edible gold while rooting for gold medal winners.

The "Go for Gold" cocktail is being offered by the WP24 Restaurant in the Ritz-Carlton in downtown Los Angeles.

Created by beverage Director Klaus Puck, the drink features vodka, elderflower, vermouth and 24-carat gold flakes.

There's even a silver lining with this drink: A portion of the proceeds from the sales of the cocktail will be donated to the Special Olympics, which makes the $24 price tag not seem so pricey after all.

"Go for Gold" will be available through Feb. 23.

Curling, Mohonk Mountain House, New Paltz, N.Y.

Now is your chance to try curling -- that quirky winter sport that involves teams moving a 40-pound stone up and down the ice with a broom. The Mohonk Mountain House is offering this and other Olympic activities, including skating and cross-country skiing, to guests.

Curling, which is complimentary for hotel guests, takes place in the hotel's 10,000-square foot open-air ice skating pavilion. (A one-night stay at the hotel is about $185.) Private and group curling lessons are also available for a fee.

Curling on the Canal, Palmyra, N.Y.

If you're in the Finger Lakes region of upstate New York on Saturday, check out the sunset Curling on the Canal festival at the Port of Palmyra Marina.

The event, on the historic Erie Canal, includes curling instruction and demonstrations, music, local food vendors and the chance to win a gold medal of your own.

"You're not going to go ski jumping, unless you pay hundreds of dollars, and you're not going to go bobsledding, but you can come to the Erie Canal and try curling," event organizer Bill Unterborn says.

No advance registration is necessary to participate in the event. And more importantly, no experience is necessary.
