Among the more amusing items in our inbox this morning was an invitation to a party in Williamsburg, Brooklyn sporting the theme "Wall Street Circa 1987."
"Two dark events are upon us: the end of my 20s and the beginning of the recession," the woman throwing the party writes. "Let's fight both Brooklyn style with a giant dirty bomb of a party."
We're taking this as a hopeful sign. If Steve Schwarzman's lavish $5 million birthday party rang the bell at the top of the credit driven leverage buyout boom, a party thrown by Williamsburg hipsters build around downbeat market sentiment might be a sign of the bottom.
