““CEOs go to their vacation homes just after companies report favorable news, and CEOs return to headquarters right before subsequent news is released. More good news is released when CEOs are back at work, and CEOs appear not to leave headquarters at all if a firm has adverse news to disclose. When CEOs are away from the office, stock prices behave quietly with sharply lower volatility. Volatility increases immediately when CEOs return to work.” —David Yermack, a New York University finance professor, whose recently released study shows a correlation between when CEOs take their private jets on vacation and movements in their companies’ stock price ”
Teton Thai: Hot Dishes, Cool Ambiance
Teton Thai delivers spicy Asian culinary masterpieces in a laid-back, Jackson-Hole-cool setting. Located near the base of the famed Wyoming ski resort, it is an extraordinary find.
With room for 20 diners inside and a pleasant patio offering additional seating outside (in good weather), this tiny Thai restaurant serves up fantastic, authentic, hot and spicy cuisine. Seats are at a premium as locals and visitors jostle to enjoy classic dishes like chicken pad Thai, panang with beef, an assortment of delectable green curries and flavorsome pad gar duck–not to mention some of the best egg rolls on the planet. (Don’t forget the sweet dipping sauce.) The spice scale goes from one to five, with three sufficient to get the fire engines revving and five off-the-charts hot.
Husband-and-wife owners Sam and Suchada run the joint as if it were an extension of their home kitchen and the service can get frenetic. While you wait for your entrees, try something from the pretty good local beer list or a wine that pairs well with the heat.
When visiting Wyoming, try to see the magnificent Grand Tetons, Yellowstone National Park and Jackson Hole Ski Resort but don’t miss Teton Thai.
