Danilo Diaz Granados Hosts a Remarkable Event


According to a recent PRNewswire release, TOYS for BOYS co-founder Danilo Diaz Granados hosted a memorable event this past July in Miami, Florida. The party included Dom Perignon, fine food, helicopter rides and a visit to the racetrack. It concluded with a boat ride at sunset.

Danilo Diaz Granados, who co-founded TOYS for BOYS in 2013, reportedly has a successful track record when it comes to holding what are sometimes called “hyper-sensory experiences.” Looking back, he told the press he wanted to create “a once-in-a-lifetime experience” for his guests. He added that now men who live in Miami “have a place to check out the most extravagant, one-of-a-kind products and places.”

This social activity was meant to give his guests the chance to experience the art, entertainment and cuisine “worthy of Miami’s extravagant style.” His guests had breakfast at Dame Zaha Hadid’s “One Thousand Museum” sales center. Then they were given a personal, private preview of the residential construction in the upscale Biscayne section of Miami.

There each guest was given the chance to drive a race car around the race track. The event continued with a taste of Dom Perignon champagne and lunch at the River Yacht Club on the Miami River hosted by none other than Dom Perignon himself.

The day came to an end with a sunset boat ride in the bay. Granados reported that they road in the newest boats of two of the event sponsors–Technomar and Van Dutch. He and his business partners pulled off a party that included air, land and sea.

But where did it all begin? In truth, it began in the same way as it does for others. It began with an education.

About.me tells us that Danilo Diaz Granados is a graduate of Babson College in Wellesley Massachusetts.

It was there he decided that Miami’s Latino community needed a “luxury boutique” that sold such products as art, exotic cars, jewelry and watches in one store. He soon co-launched The TOYS for BOYS Boutique.  He remains a big part of social media, and you can find Danilo on both Tumblr, as well as Twitter.

Hedge Fund Manager Kyle Bass Set To Speak At The Vanity Fair New Establishment Summit

Dallas-based hedge fund manager Kyle Bass has been asked to be a speaker at the upcoming Vanity Fair New Establishment Summit, which will be held at San Francisco’s Yerba Buena Center for the Arts. The Summit is presented by Conde Nast and the Aspen Institute. Bass will join Amazon C.E.O., Jeff Bezos, best-selling author Walter Isaacson, co-founder of the Chan-Zuckerberg Initiative, Priscilla Chan, Chobani CEO, Hamdi Ulukaya, U.S. secretary of the interior, Sally Jewell, and Eddy Cue, Apple’s senior vice-president as a guest speaker.

Bass is often asked to speak about the economy and financial news, but he is also asked to speak about politics and an assortment of other issues that don’t really fall into his wheelhouse. But that doesn’t faze Kyle Bass, despite what UsefulStooges.com writes about him. Bass likes the limelight and the Vanity Fair Summit is another venue to keep Mr. Bass in the public’s eye. But over the last eight years, Kyle has made some questionable choices. He’s not the same person that made a fortune betting that the subprime mortgage industry would fall apart in 2008. He’s not the same guy that bet that the European Union would have to bail Greece out of their financial debacle, either. Bass has stepped on several important toes in the financial industry, and he has made himself look bad in the public’s eye.

When Argentina defaulted on debt bonds a few years ago and left four hedge funds holding a lot of worthless paper, Kyle Bass, the hedge fund manager of Hayman Capital, blame the hedge funds for trying to take advantage of the people of Argentina. When General Motors installed steering devices that malfunction and caused the deaths of the drivers of those vehicles, Kyle Bass blamed the victims, not General Motors. Hayman Capital’s hedge fund was the largest shareholder in GM at the time.

The most recent news about Bass is his bet that drug stocks will drop when his partner, Eric Spangenberg, brings allegations about pharmaceutical companies overcharging for life-saving drugs.

Michael Zomber Is a Collector and an Investor

Michael Zomber has come a long way from his college days. He did his undergraduate studies at the University of Illinois. He worked very hard and took on the very difficult challenge of a double major. He graduated with bachelor’s degrees in English and psychology. He wanted to do this because he always loved to challenge himself. However, his education did not stop there. He felt that he needed a graduate degree to make him more desirable on the job market. Therefore, he enrolled in UCLA where he studied English literature. He eventually earned a master’s degree in this subject.

Michael was not certain what type of job he wanted to get when he finally finished his education. He made a trip to a gun show with a friend. It was at this show that he became interested in antique guns. He knew right away that he wanted to make these beautiful works of art a major part of his life. He soon started to teach himself about the history of guns to the point that he quickly became an authority on the subject. His collection of guns has grown considerably over the years. He has often loaned some of his guns to museums and historical societies so that other antique gun enthusiasts can enjoys looking at them.

His gun collection has made Michael a celebrity. He never expected to get this much attention. However, he is happy to talk about his guns with anyone who is interested. There are some guns that he will never sell. However, he will regularly buy guns because he believes they are very good investments. Michael understands which guns are going to go up in value in the future. He buys these guns and puts them away for a few years and allows them the time needed to increase their value. He will then sell these guns online or at live auctions. Including when he makes documentaries through his production companies.
