    Happy 71st Birthday, Carl Icahn!

    (And don’t feel bad about invitees already calling tonight’s bash The Poor Man’s Schwarzman. He might’ve had jumbo sized shrimp puffs and an ice sculpture of Dick Parsons, but jumbo sized shrimp puffs and an ice sculpture of Dick Parsons aren’t John Carney serenading you with “Happy Birthday, Mr. (Activist) Investor,” now are they?)

    Live Blogging Stephen Schwarzman’s “Super Sixtieth B’day”

    For those of you who are unlucky enough to not still be drunk from the big Schwarzman bash last night, either because you’re now hung-over (take a page from Jamie Dimon’s playbook and have a few of whatever you were throwing back last night, which in JD’s case, would be some Fuzzy Navels) or because […]

    A Big Fancy Party For Mohmmad Yunus

    We’re not exactly sure why we didn’t get the invitation to this party Steve Clemons details at the Huffington Post: Last night, Washington’s political stars turned out to pay homage to the banker who started in 1976 lending $27 to 42 people in one village in Bangladesh.

    Party Crash: Wall Street Warriors, Ad Nauseam

    So you thought another post about Wall Street Warriors was out of the question, did you? Well, guess what? You thought wrong. Dead wrong.

    You’ll have to excuse the pictures/commentary from last night’s Trader Monthly party, as they may seem overly dismissive in their resentment.

    ‘Party’ Crash: Reuters

    So we went to this thing* last night about “public figures, private lives” that Reuters was hosting and my but it was fun. We’re sharing this with you because DB here is, and we don’t know if you know this, a Wall Street Tabloid. The talk didn’t have much to do with “Wall Street,” as […]
