Goldman Bankers: Please Stop Hitting on the Bartender at Nebraska Beef

The Daily news ran a story on how all the bankers at Goldman Sachs Group (NYSE GS) plan to spend their fat check and bonus money by interviewing purveyors of luxury products in Manhattan including a golf dealer, a BMW dealer, and last but not least, a bartender. It's not unusual to ask for the name, age, and occupation of interviewees, but for the bartender, the Daily News also included additional facts for its dear readers - like her marital status and that she comes with luggage.

Mona Vijolan, 27, of Glendale, Queens, tends bar at Nebraska Beef, a Stone St. steakhouse in the shadow of the Goldman Sachs building. Lately, brokers haven't blinked at the $63 price when ordering "The Stockbroker," a hunk of aged prime rib served with a half-pound lobster tail.

"This is the month for bonuses and when the market's been good, our customers are even more generous than usual," said Vijolan, who's married and has a 4-year-old daughter. "This year has been great," she said, adding that $100 tips are commonplace. (via)

Nice to know. But for those multimillionaire bankers, that's probably not a dealbreaker.
