Nouriel Roubini would like to soothe weary Fashion Weekers in his brand new hot tub
Nouriel Roubini has always been known as a ladies’ man. His old Tribeca loft was decorated with plaster vulvas and he once told the New York mag that he was “a 10 girls to one” kinda guy.
Things have changed in the past few years however. New York City’s Department of Buildings forced him to remove his giant rooftop hot tub – ending an era of al fresco hijinx for him – and his legendary bacchanalias have mysteriously kept off the rags.
He has a new tub now though, as well as a pretty clever way to lure him some fun, according to Page Six:
“Dr. Doom” Nouriel Roubini, who is equally known for his model-packed hot tub parties at his Manhattan apartment as for his market predictions, is generously offering his pad for soothing “special meditation sessions” — plus a dip in the tub — during New York Fashion Week.
Famed economist Roubini — whose boisterous hot tub bacchanals have been a steaming source of anger for his East Village neighbors — will be hosting a meditation session with the Path at his triplex penthouse on Tuesday, followed by a promised plunge in his hallowed Jacuzzi.
According to an e-mail sent out by the Path, which teaches ancient meditation techniques, “The sit will take place at sunset, and everyone who joins will be invited to stay after to enjoy gorgeous views and a new rooftop hot tub.”
Oh, and he wants you to pay $20 for the pleasure too.
