Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer certainly knows how to make meetings memorable.
After managing to avoid a shot by a single photographer all week at the Allen & Co. conference in Sun Valley, Idaho, Mayer was spotted inside the Duchin bar at around 11:30 p.m. Thursday. Perhaps more surprising than the sight of Mayer was her drinking buddy: none other than AOL CEO Tim Armstrong.
The two executives, whose companies have long been rumored as merger partners, shared a table close to the entrance of the bar sipping drinks for over an hour. Also in the house was a mix of big hitters including New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, Google co-founder Larry Page, Twitter CEO Dick Costolo, and venture capitalist Ben Horowitz. Press and even staff of Allen & Co. are banned from entering the wood-paneled bar, which is nestled below rugged mountains.
