What do PE and VCs execs do on their holiday weekends?

We’ve all heard about the rise in deals. M&A, which was down in Q1, is supposed to go up later this year. If this is true, then PE pros, VCs and their investment bankers should start getting busy just about now.

Why do I ask? Last summer, I wondered what my PE sources actually did on Fridays. Did they, hopefully, jet off to Monaco and gamble? Or did they spend time with their families? Many, surprisingly, said they were working because the deal flow was so strong. This turned out to be strong indicator for the rest of the year (deal flow in late 2010 was strong).

In the interests of science, we want to know your three-day weekend plans.
