    Want To Show Up To Work Looking And Smelling Like An Upstanding Citizen No Matter What You Did Last Night?

    Do you party so hard you wake up looking like a dead person the next day? Has a colleague mentioned your skin tone is very similar to his uncle’s when he was diagnosed with cirrhosis of the liver? Do you get weird stares in meetings from people wondering what drain you were pulled out of? […]

    This Is A Story About A Person Who Volunteered To Run A Marathon While Hungover For $1,000

    The following note was found in our inbox earlier this afternoon:

    “Our junior guy came in this morning hung over and stinking like booze. After a few of us made comments on how awful he looked, he responded by letting us know that he’s in good enough shape to run a marathon, right now. Almost in sync and without hesitation, we said “done.” He named his price: $1000 (WAY TOO LOW) and within 2 minutes, he had $1000 cash on his desk. He just left the trading floor and is headed back to his apartment to change into running clothes. He initially said he could finish the 26.2 in less than 5 hours in his work clothes as long as we let him change into sneakers. We decided to let him change into running gear, since we’re good guys, but he still has the 5 hour time limit. We’re tracking him via his iPhone’s GPS. Happy Friday.”

    Not Everyone Thrilled With Rick Kimball’s Involvement In Hangover Prevention Company

    Last month, we learned that at some point over the summer, Richard Kimball Jr. had left Goldman Sachs. Not knowing his plans, at the time we speculated he was either starting his own hedge fund, as former bankers, particularly ones who’ve been partners at Goldman, tend to do, or designing a line for La Perla, as people whose adult pool parties and clothing-optional Halloween gatherings that enrage the neighbors also tend to do. Today, however, we were informed that we were wrong on both counts. While owning a hedge fund or designing lingerie seem like they would fall in Kimball’s wheelhouse, his new gig is actually more perfect for him than anything would could have imagined. ‘Cause when one thinks of Rick Kimball Jr, one thinks PAR-TAY ANIMAL. And when you’re a par-tay animal on the level of The Kimballer, you need to take important steps to ensure the party don’t stop. Safeguards, if you will. One reason often cited by people who’ve been engaging in some hard partying for “never doing that again” is the desire to not suffer crippling hangovers the next day. But what if Rick Kimball told you you could party like no one was watching without ever waking up to another hangover again? Would that sound like something you’d be interested in? Because what we’re saying is: Rick Kimball is currently running a hangover prevention company.*

    Bonding Over Booze In Davos

    The Volcker Rule was at the core of many fights last week at Davos. As we wrote, bankers couldn’t agree with each other, lawmakers couldn’t agree either, but still decided to band up against bankers, blah, blah. Anyway, seems like there wasn’t a lack of booze, as we initially thought, and on the last day […]

    And The Hangover Begins…

    The broader market takes a ~2% pounding at the open. Ambac and MBIA getting trounced following rather significant losses. All that appetite for risk yesterday seems to have evaporated. It’s like there was some huge, world changing event that happened overnight, and sucked the air out the market. (We think it is that Steve Forrester’s […]
