this crap

…it was an after-party for Mack that now has both current and future Morgan Stanley executives fuming. That party, according to people who were invited, took place at the swanky Temple of Dendur in the Metropolitan Museum of Art in Manhattan. The Temple features ancient Egyptian art and artifacts, where people with big bucks can sip wine and munch on expensive hors d’oeuvres as if they were hanging with Cleopatra…But what has some Morgan executives, both past and present, angered is the cost for the Temple bash and that Morgan appears to have picked up the tab, according to people close to the firm. To be sure, the price of renting a room at the Temple isn’t cheap. Corporations that become “patrons” of the Met pay an up-front fee of $60,000, which allows them to rent the Temple once a year and then pay an additional $38,000 to hold a two-hour reception. “Take a look at the stock price and tell me why they should be spending company money on this crap,” one former senior executive told FOX Business.
