My weekend in Omaha gave me a window ONto the ultra rich, even when I didn’t notice, such as when Bill Ackman was standing behind me while I bought Buffett and Munger rubber duckies at the Oriental Trading Company booth.
It was a big weekend for the see and be seen set, and Omaha was invaded with private jets. I chatted with various drivers and pilots about their criss-crossing the country.
The weekend circuit the most ambitious undertook:
- Friday night NFL Draft in Chicago
- Saturday morning Berkshire Hathaway Annual Meeting
- Saturday evening Kentucky Derby
- Saturday night fight in Vegas
I didn’t even catch all that on TV, though I was plenty happy with my plum dumpling at family-run Omaha institution Bohemian Cafe.
