Celebrate The Kentucky Derby By Getting Beaten With Branches By A Former Goldman Equities Trader

Publish date:

Several months back, it was announced that Goldman Sachs's head of equity trading in Moscow, Peter Kizenko, was quitting Wall Street to finally make his dreams a reality. Specifically, the dream of opening a line of New Jersey-based banyas (Russian saunas in which visitors "begin with several rotations in and out of a steam room to allow the body to warm up and naked bathers typically beat one another with birch or pine branches before plunging into cold water or rolling in snow to cool down"), called Bear and Birch. At the end of February, the first B&B location was complete. If you've yet to make the trip (LLOYD) and aren't doing anything Saturday, Peter has invited one and all to stop by and we definitely think you should take him up on the offer.
