Steve On Steve: The Most Magical Night Of ALL TIME

A few weeks ago I told you to mark your calendars for the social event of the year. At the time I said it was the SAC Capital Giant Balloon Inflation Party. I lied. The balloon blowing is still going on (this Saturday in fact) but it is not the extravaganza you need to drop all previously made plans for. Do you know what's going to happen on December 8th? I don't think you do otherwise you'd be working yourselves into a frenzy along with me. I'm not even sure you're fully prepared for what I'm about to lay on your asses and you probably never will be so I'm just going to say it now: STEVE COHEN MAGIC NIGHT. And when I say "STEVE COHEN MAGIC NIGHT" I mean it in two ways. First, Steve Cohen, the magician. Second, Steve Cohen, the man who makes the world a more magical place by simply existing. That's right--doubly penetrated by magical SC's.

I'm not sure why you would need details further than that but here's the deal: there's a famous magician named Steve Cohen who performs at the Waldorf. On December 8th he's doing a charity show for hunger organized by the Inside Sports and Entertainment Group sponsored by our Steve, who will be in the audience and, fingers-crossed, acting as an assistant. I went to one of these shows a few weeks ago and it was awesome but that's not the point. If you need a reason to attend an event where there will be TWO STEVE COHENS IN THE SAME ROOM, one of them pulling rabbits out of hats, the other riding in on a Zamboni, you need to reevaluate your life. Tickets can be purchased here. There are 80 (now 78) seats available. I suggest you get on this ASAP.


New York Mets Might Want To Savor Their Time Under The Tutelage Of Steve Cohen

...because they're about their last! SAC Capital Advisors founder Steven Cohen is the front-runner to purchase the Los Angeles Dodgers. Reports earlier this week indicated that Cohen's bid for the baseball team was a couple hundred million dollars less than that made by former baseball executive Stan Kasten and Los Angeles Lakers legend Magic Johnson. But Cohen's bid now matches the Kasten-Johnson offer of $1.6 billion—and at least half of Cohen's purchase price would come in the form of cash. Indeed, Cohen, who last month bought a small stake in the New York Mets, which he would have to give up if approved to buy the California team, may already be planning for the Dodgers' future. He has reportedly spoken with former Major League manager Tony La Russa about taking the team over under a Cohen regime. [FinAlternatives]
