DE Shaw's Party Was Way Better Than Blackstone's

Were told by someone who attended both the Blackstone Group's 25th anniversary party at the Metropolitan Museum of Art last month and DE Shaws party at the New York Public Library last week, that the DE Shaw party was much, much better.

In the first place, it was a better crowd. It was younger, and the dates people brought were much better looking, the person said.

The person described the atmosphere as very different also. At Blackstone's Met party, people were acting very self-consciously low-key. They were huddled into little groups. But at the DE Shaw party people were, actually, partying, mixing, flirting and chatting.

Ironically, the New York Public Library is now officially called the Stephen A. Schwarzman Building, named for the founder of the Blackstone Group.
