Last one in the Jacuzzi!: Dr. Doom's 14-hour bash on East First Street last weekend

Page Six has this item today:

"Dr. Doom," NYU professor Nouriel Roubini, took a break from his predictions of economic calamity to throw one of his famous parties at his sprawling East Village triplex penthouse Saturday. Roubini invited a crowd of models, lawyers and creative types to his pad, which is big enough to hold a world economic summit and boasts a new, giant Jacuzzi on the roof terrace. Guests greeted by an upbeat-looking Roubini at the 14-hour bash — which started at noon with a dip in the model-packed Jacuzzi — included Sean Stone, director son of Oliver Stone, prominent lawyers Richard Conn Jr. and David Hryck, former CNBC journalist and MDC Partners' Ash Bennington and Roubini's stunning girlfriend, Micca Wang. While only some got the memo that the dress code was "Carmens & Matadors," all were treated to a live performance of the opera orchestrated by Or Movement's Shai Baitel. Roubini told us, "People know me as Dr. Doom, but as you can see, I really like to enjoy life."

Dr. D, who predicted the global financial crisis, bought the swanky $5.5 million, 3,700-square-foot home at 6 E. First St. last year.

Carmens & Matadors dress code? What the hell does that mean? Is it an opera thing? It sounds like the working title for a pilot on HBO to me.

"upbeat Dr. Doom" = coked out Dr. Doom. 14hour parties don't happen on caffeine.

in the same breath...how do we get an invite to these parties?
