Wall St financiers party like there's no tomorrow -- literally

Dec 5 01:12 PM US/Eastern

The hedge fund dealers partied at a New York nightclub like there was no tomorrow -- which for some was probably true.
Swilling martinis and vodkas, they filled Manhattan's white, tent-themed Nikki Beach to bursting. Waiters, trays of tapas held high in the air, became stranded, wedged into crowds swaying to music under pink lights.

About 650 guests attended the event late Wednesday, a third more than organizers expected.

Yet with hedge funds in freefall, this was more funeral wake than celebration.

"The industry is down 20 percent. It's by far the worst environment we've ever seen and we'll see a lot of funds going out of business," said Evan Rapoport, co-founder of HedgeCo Networks, which services hedge funds and organized the party.

The evening was billed as a networking session. Sometimes that meant angling for a particularly special deal.

2. There Better Not Be--For Them!
This country, this world, can't afford such a load of parasites.

4. For them, there probably isn't.
Ten bucks says that at least one of those people is going to end up french kissing a shotgun at some point.
