Ain't no party like an AIG party (w/video).

AIG executives thank you for financing their trip to such a beautiful resort 🙂

They want you to know that your money paid for a wonderful retreat!! They have been exhausted from their role in deflating your 401k for their own enrichment – boy did they need this luxurious getaway. You (and your children and grandchildren) are so generous to pay for it!

It also paid $1,075 in “no-show fees.”

Below, get a taste of the luxury AIG executives enjoyed at St. Regis Resort, Monarch Beach. You might as well. You paid for it.

Motif. . . a delectable culinary experience awaits with Executive Chef Frederic Castan at the helm. The cuisine of Motif is reminiscent of European style cafés and features an eclectic array of dishes. Motif’s warm, inviting atmosphere overlooks the magnificent Pacific Ocean, and with its scenic indoor and outdoor dining available, is an ideal choice for breakfast, lunch, dinner or an extraordinary Sunday Champagne Brunch.

That’s just one of the fine restaurants. Here are the others:

No trip would be complete without an afternoon (or two!) in the wine cellar:

The Wine Cellar is the ultimate private dining venue perfect for intimate receptions, smaller group events and catered functions for up to 50 people.The Wine Cellar features 100 year old, French, pavĂ©d flooring and stone walls creating a “cellar-like” ambiance. The cellar has an authentic feel with mahogany & custom iron furnishings, an oval wooden tasting table, intimate private dining area, and an extensive wine inventory of over 17,000 bottles from around the world.

…and of course, Club 19 after a day of world class golf… er… whatever class golf on a world class golf course. Sip brandy on us, oh Lords of Insurance Fraud (or whatever the frik it is you did), and brag about that great chip on the 14th – we are right there with you (well… sort of – at least our money is).

…and the spa! Oh the spa!!

Enter into the spirit of Spa Gaucin. Experience the intoxicating scent of fresh flowers and aromatherapy oils, the warm natural light of architectural splendor, spellbinding works of art and the quiet cascading whisper from three-story water walls and waterfalls. We are a place where soothing natural beauty and flawless service is abundant.Each treatment begins with the toss of a coin into our “Well of Desires,” where symbolically all your cares will be left behind. Choose from our spa menu made up of exquisite treatments from the Southern California coast to the springs of Hungary that refresh, soften, and leave your mind and body rapt in euphoria.

Finally, there was the ultimate reward. What most of you don’t realize is that the last couple of weeks have been stressful. They thought they might actually be held accountable for their incompetence (almost like, you know… regular people – eeew!). There were a few tense days there when they weren’t sure if you would bail them out or not.

Well, you did! You bailed them out and all is well. They did it! They got away with it! So much worry! So much stress! They really had to take this time to let their hair down, cut loose and party!

This is the bar where you bought a $5,000 round of drinks to congratulate them on their latest streak of good luck:

Ain’t no party like an AIG party.
