Banker Halloween Party

Banker Halloween PartyMy experience with Halloween in New York has been hit or miss. Right after I moved here after school in 2004, I was dragged to a weird, hipsterish party at some warehouse in the Meatpacking District. To play to the audience, I dressed as a Florida Voting Booth. It wasn’t an elaborate costume; over my normal outfit I just hung a piece of cardboard with 3 buttons and the names: Nader, Kerry, and Bush next to them. The Nader and Kerry buttons were incredibly tiny, and the Bush one was huge. I may have inadvertently made some lame political statement, but I just wanted to watch dozens of hipster girls push a button to vote Republican. Predictably, they did; and I poked them right back.

The space for the party was huge, but uncomfortably industrial. There was a trippy burlesque show going on the whole time, and they only served Absolut Vodka. The music selection was weird, electronic, and not even the slightest bit 80’s. Overall, I was unimpressed. People’s costumes were, for the most part, not sexy or chic, they were legitimately freakish. What absurd kind of Halloween party was I at that skin and lace had been replaced by blood and gore?

Halfway through the night, I had a particularly odd run-in. I was chatting up a cute girl in a prep school uniform who, in the spirit of the party, had blood running down from her nose and all over her entire face. It was creepy, but what can I say? I got nostalgic.

Some guy friend of hers came over to try to talk to her. He was wearing was a very average looking suit with a clumsily folded pocket square, and he had a 3-ring binder in his hand.

I wasn’t being defensive, just a bit curious. “So what are you?” I asked him.

He took a moment to smile at himself, obviously eager to explain his witty costume. “You know,” he responded. “I’m one of those New York City Banker-types.” And he proudly showed me the binder on which he had scribbled “Pitch Book” in black marker.

I paused, overwhelmed by the ridiculousness of the situation. I looked him up and down again, only to find square-toe shoes and a knot I was certain he had triple-looped. I shook my head and exploded in laughter.

This guy was truly pleased with his outfit of social commentary, but I couldn’t help myself; I had to tear him apart. I pulled his girl close with one arm, raised my other palm to his face, and slapped him lightly twice on the cheek. I chuckled again. “Nice try, bro,” I offered, right before laughing all the way out of that party, into a cab, and half-way back to the prep school girl’s parents’ UES townhouse.

I had to leave once I realized where we were heading. Turns out she wasn’t even dressed up.


This year, I went to a party that was on the exact opposite end of the spectrum. My buddy from Blackstone was having a thing at his place in SoHo and had decided that all the guys would dress up as something Wall Street-related, and all the girls just had to be really hot. Genius.

The party was decadent and refined, in a pre-IPO kind of way. The space competed with the warehouse in size, but it was sophisticated. Cocktail waitresses circled the loft, serving top-shelf booze and hors d’œuvres. The music was 80’s, pop, and not the slightest bit trippy. His private, Astroturf roof was also opened up, and the weather was just temperate enough that scantily dressed girls were comfortable.

I walked over and greeted my friend Peter who was covered head to toe in garbage: empty cans, bottles, and other random crap.

I considered him for a second. “Retail Banker?” I asked, almost 100% certain.

“Junk bond,” he responded. “Close though.”

I had been traveling and running late, so I wasn’t able to grab my costume. Again, nothing elaborate, but I had bought a Milwaukee Brewers hat that I was going to put on and point to repeatedly if questioned.

We chatted for a bit, strategizing as to which of the girls attending was the cutest. I don’t think they were instructed to do so, but every single one was dressed as a flapper from the 1920’s.

Sipping a drink, I inspected the rest of the finance-related costumes. They ranged in creativity.

There were, as would be expected, several incarnations of various finance internet celebrities. Aleksey Vayner appeared in a couple forms: shirtless in briefs and also in tennis attire. A Zack Michaelson had fashioned an entire fortress out of cardboard and stood inside of it, carrying a sleeping bag and pillow. There was even an Asian Peter Chung who had draped himself in strands of “domes.”

I spotted a guy with a beer bottle taped to his crotch and gave him a look of understanding. Another dude had printed a mortgage onto his shirt and stamped DEFAULT in red ink on his forehead. Not bad.

I kept browsing, and in the corner of the room, I saw a guy dressed up as what definitely appeared to be a massive turd—a really big piece of shit. “Peter,” I asked. “What’s that guy?”

He shrugged his shoulders, chewing foie grass. “People have been guessing all night man, and no one’s gotten it,” he informed me.

I was determined to figure it out.

Walking up to the roof to get some fresh air, I spotted a few combo outfits. One guy had an “alpha” symbol on his back and was getting perpetually chased by a Jim Cramer look-alike. Another pair was bound together with cuffs and a chain. Half of the duo was undoubtedly the Chrysler building, and the thing latched to him was someone dressed up like a savage, 3-headed dog. Periodically, one of the Cerberus’ heads would reach up and bite the building, ripping it apart and spitting out the remains. It was an interesting piece, I thought: life imitating art. It made the ballerness of the buyout truly palpable.

I stopped walking, having had a random epiphany. “Pump and dump?!” I reflected excitedly about The Turd. That was definitely it.

I quickly hunted him down and presented my hypothesis. He said nothing and shook his little shit head “no.”

Fuck. I walked away and made it up to the roof, finally. I tried to clear my mind and decided the best way would be to talk to one of the hotter airhead flappers. I found one, we started chatting, and it was working—I was completely zoned-out.

After a while, my friend Gopal came by. He had somewhat small, fake plastic tits hanging out from under a blue blouse and had stuffed his black pants so that his thighs and ass were huge, giving him a bulbous, pear shape.

“I’m a Banker Chick!” he informed, stating the obvious. Both guys and girls couldn’t help but grope him, and I was certain that this was the most action both Gopal and any Banker Chick would ever see. He ran away, giddy and ticklish.

Things started to escalate with the flapper, only because I was too busy still decoding The Turd to shut her up.

“So what are you?” she asked after a while.

I snapped back and realized that without my cap to point to, I was stuck. I thought for a second and remembered that idiot from 3 years back.

“You know,” I said, almost jokingly. “I’m one of those New York City Banker-types.”

She paused to look me up and down. My Canali, Ferragamos, and well-knotted Hermes tie must have been slightly more convincing, because after a moment, she tapped me on the cheek gently and said, cheerfully: “Perfect. Cause that’s exactly what I was looking for.”

As we walked downstairs and out of the party together, I winked and bid a few people goodbye.

Right as we were getting to the door, I saw The Turd, and he was talking to an older Black man with an axe sticking out of his head.

Suddenly, it clicked.

“Wachovia!” I burst confidently from across the room, pointing at him with my index finger.

Both The Turd and Stan O’Neal turned and sent back congratulatory looks. They nodded their heads in unison, smiled, and gave me four, big shit-eating thumbs ups.

It was an interesting piece, I thought: art imitating life. It made the retardedness of that decision truly palpable.

    Nice try – but this one wont rouse the masses to pitchforks and torches like the last few did. Also – hipsters have no idea that bankers produce ”pitch books”. All they know is that bankers are the scum of the earth who rip bread from the lips of the starving poor. Finally that tortured reference to the CAPM – more subtlety my dear chap, give the reader more credit.

    Have never been to this site before, but this kind of makes me realize that there is a legitimate underpinning to all the spite many of the less fortunate have towards I-Bankers. I?ve always scoffed at the hipster type, who in turn scoffs at the typical banker, and merely chalked it up to a case of envy. But this little story is so infected with a pompous prik mentality that it?s hard not to start to dislike bankers (even though I am one). I?ve long been of the opinion, and frankly still am, that MOST bankers are douchebags who were never anybody until they graduated from school and got hired at a prestigious firm. They?re typically the kids who were picked on all their lives by the athletes and the dudes that were getting laid in high school and college. Then, they grauduate, get a job, pad their pockets, buy some nice clothes, and all of a sudden think they?re masters of the universe. Maybe they get laid often, maybe they don?t, but regardless, what?s the point of getting laid when you have premature ejaculation problems cause you haven?t fucked a girl since your senior prom (and even then it was a sympathy fuck). Take the cash away and all you have is an over-intelligent worm longing for the day where he can ”rule the roost”. You ever wonder why so many bankers are referred to as ruthless? It?s because they?ve got so much pent up agression inside them from being a pussy their entire life, that they take it out on others professionally.

    I gotta agree with you bro. I?ve been in banking a long time and I?m convinced that most, including me, are pathetic losers. Wealthy losers, but still losers. Most of us will have major regrets when we look back at our lives. I already do, and there are days when I?m just a few Red Bulls away from slashing my cuff-linked wrists.

But while you spend the rest of your life in the landscaping industry, unable to afford the prescription meds for the herpes you got while flunking out of state school, the rest of us will move on and spend the rest of our lives making money, closing beautiful women, and laughing at you.

    He doesn?t mention or try to relieve the high-school years. Instead he points out that many of the bankers are trying to pretend that they were the ”cool” kids growing up. It?s not the first; many of my school do the same. I see students that dream of not the cash, but the glamour and the fun that follows with the money. However, they don?t realize, it?s just their characters and personalities that are just boring. Laugh all you want, but your the one using vicious ad-hoc attacks to try to appease your own ego. You may be laughing as you close your ”beautiful” women. I don?t need to. I can close in college. Somehow, I doubt you could do the same.

    Must we go over this again? High school was glorious for those of us who were athletic and beautiful and fortunate enough to have gone through any awkward stage prior to hitting puberty. For the rest it sucked. Moving on, college was a different story for some of these nerds, a renaissance if you will, for the socially inept, ugly ducklings of yesteryear who now found a new bar by which to be measured by.the fraternity or the social club. Now we have moved far beyond being judged solely by our looks and social affiliations, now it has to do with how we spend our days. However, that is not to say that any douche with a good firm can be a master of the universe. It requires arrogance associated an impeccable superficial aesthetic and a brilliant mind to be a McCoy. At least half of the people I work with are the kids who got stuffed in lockers, and spent the time when everyone else was going out and making bad decisions, brooding over the unfairness of life only to devise a diabolical plan that one day they would rise to the top of the banking world, become an md and take out the majority of their homoerotic frustrations on analysts

    Diatriber Said:

    To Anon @ 8:45: I never said anything about measuring yourself by how cool you were in H.S. & College. How about re-reading what I said and then commenting. You?ll notice that I mentioned I am also a banker, but unlike the majority of the banking crowd, I realize that just working for a big firm and taking home a big paycheck doesn?t make you any better off than the douchebag that you really are. In fact if you take a step back and look at what most of us are doing, we?re being bitches to the select few who made it up the ladder (by a lot of ass kissing, and political BS) in the I-Banking world. I do it, you do it, we all do it. However, I don?t kid myself into glorifying what I do. I do it for the money, end of story. So, with that said, go on an continue defending all your late nights editing fonts, and trying to make it sound important. Go on and BS about how many gorgeous women you?ve ”closed”. But please, go on doing it with the knowledge that you?re a fucking loser outside of the world of finance, and all those gorgeous women you?re laying are fucking you because they think you have money, not because they actually like you. Tool.

    Analyst life is what it is: you get dumped on in exchange for a huge paycheck. We all have our own reasons for making that trade. What amazes me, though, is how few people stay in this game longer term (5+ years) without having their personality become truly warped. I can?t believe the number of badly-adjusted-bordering-on-unhinged people who work in my group. Just about all the senior people fall into one of two categories: 1. vain, arrogant, incapable of empathy (mostly the males) 2. tense, volatile, constant state of panic (mostly the females) I?m curious if other people observe the same? There?s no way these people were like this when they through the door as analysts, they would have been laughed at!

    For all you guys who think that banker chicks are skinny because of Coke, that?s probably true less than 10% of the time.

Anyone that?s from LA originally (like me) can tell you how common anorexia is?and also how common it is in the Ivy League and other feeder schools to banks. And you think you are all such experts on women?. And one more thing?the pear-shape that female banker?s get is best referred to as ”secretary spread” (as in my ass is spreading all over the chair) or you can just say ”three ax-handles” as in ”she?s got an ass that?s three ax-handles wide.” I hope this was edumacational for y?all.

Last week I travelled to Lagos (business class!) to pitch Avante Capital on the privatization of the Dzanga-Sangha National Park. Stayed at the Lagos Hilton! No bottle service here in Bangui, but I bought a couple of bars with part of my last paycheck. I reserve the entire joint(s) whenever I want to head out with the lads. Then we get our crew to bring in a load of hot women. There are over 80 ethnic groups in CAR, so we mix it up to keep things interesting – Tuesdays is Baya Ladies Night, Wednesdays is Banda, and so on.

    Trader, Sorry bro. NYC sucks. It?s a festering urban wasteland filled with garbage, urine, and cockroach infested apartments. Chicago is the place to be. It?s one of the cleanest cities in the country, with an awesome quality of living, and nightlife and women that blow away NYC. I?m really sorry that you and your ilk can?t afford to enjoy what Chicago has to offer. Continue enjoy being in a third tier toilet.

    I just have to say? the posts and the accompanying comments have to be the funniest things I have ever read. I mean the only other time that text has made me literally LAUGH OUT LOUD was when I read that Toole book. The Confederacy of something? idiots or imbeciles or something. Initially, when I discovered this website I was so offended – my hopes of becoming an investment banker were completely obliterated. You guys look down on schools like Yale and Cornell, what chance do I have coming from McGill. Then I realized how funny this shit was.

    Chicago dude, I don?t mean to trash on Chicago – I?ve never been, my friend! Therefore, I can?t comment. I was only talking about the manner of force used to defend your city. I?d really like to live there for a while, hopefully I get a chance to do that. I?m in London for the moment and don?t see any opportunity coming out of the woodwork any time soon.

    i?m assuming chicago guy?s post was entirely sarcastic, but in case it wasn?t, here?s a reply. nyc a ”third tier toilet”? chicago with women who ”blow nyc chicks away”? while i?ve been to chicago and like the city a lot, you?ve got to be kidding. chicago consists entirely of only a few breeds of people: rich kids from the north shore, kids from wisconsin/minnesota/indiana and the rest of the big ten schools who are frightened of the thought of moving to either coast, and a bunch of well fed girls who are not too easy on the eyes but easy to get into bed (yes, that was both an insult and a compliment). i have friends who are die-hard chicago, born and raised and ultimately want to mvoe back, but even they aren?t dumb enough to think the girls there are better than girls in NYC. granted, they aren?t stuck up b!tches like we have in new york, but i?ll take hard to get and skinny over begging for it and hefty any day. as for the 3rd tier toilet comment, you?re clearly a moron. i think someone from philadelphia is pretending to be from chicago, because any native chicago-an would be embarassed to read what you?re writing.

You losers can?t even name more than 5 venues that are more exclusive and have hotter girls than Chicago?s best clubs/bars/lounges. Enjoy your third tier toilet.

    seriously chicago? can?t name 5? i?m no club expert, but i?m sure i can name 5 places on one BLOCK that has hotter girls than chicago. walk down west 27th street in between 10th and 11th ave?s between midnight and 4am on any random wed-sat night and try repeating that last comment with a straight face. the girls at pink elephant, home, guest house, et. al. combined probably weigh about the same as the 3 girls you can fit in your car. you won?t find any girls hounding the sidewalk vendors for a polish sausage like they do in wrigleyville. they purposely didn?t eat anything that day so that they can fit into their painted on jeans and drink an inappropriate amount of vodka, all the while joinging the rest of ny in making fun of guys like you who have to go home at 1am cause their city sucks and bars close at that time. i know this and i hate clubs – give me a fun bar anytime. i just hate idiots, and you sir, fit the bill.

    anon gs guy, You now show your true colors. The fact that you cite west 27th between 10th and 11th, shows how low your tastes are. Those clubs attract trashy bridge and tunnel chicks. Just remember that Chicago gets the hottest big 10 girls while NYC gets girls from jersey and long island.

    The comments here are hysterical. My vote?s with the Chi-town, London crew. I was born in this smelly city that is NYC and people here are absolutely delusional. Everything costs so fucking much and is so fucking MEDIOCRE. The money HFers and PE gods and goddesses put down for apartments could get them freaking castles in Europes. NY is hyped beyond reason and everyone here is coked up and too drunk to realise how scammed they are. Plus all these NYC defenders are midwestern and Jersey hicks so proud to finally be ”in the city” that they?ll say anything to justify their shitty lives in New York. Real New Yorkers know the city is such a fucking pain but they want their bodegas and to not see pale white faces all day. Paris is awesome. Chicago is awesome (though pale faces) and London is awesome. Stop the delusions wanksters.

I had to google LES to see if anything legitimate actually existed or if you are just an idiot who cant even spell an acronym for the London School of Economics correctly. Moving on, ”For example, last night, I partied at a club called underground, and the girls there were simply unbelievable, better than anything NYC has to offer.” has got to be the most pathetic quote I have ever heard.
