The investing Web site peHUB (Private Equity Hub) held one of its occasional shindigs in Boston last night. The party, hosted by peHUB editor-at-large Dan Primack, packed the second floor of the venerable Bell-in-Hand Tavern, with late-comers stuck schmoozing on the less-happening ground floor.

I didn't stay long, since Wednesday was a three-event day (Boston Chamber of Commerce breakfast, MassBio Annual Meeting for lunch, and peHUB for a beer).

But here's who I saw:

Chip Hazard and Kate Castle from Flybridge Capital Partners... Brad Johnson of video start-up YouCastr... Sachin Agarwal from Oneforty... former Centra Software CEO Leon Navickas...Sean Marsh of Providence-based Point Judith Capital...

...Andrew Joseph of the math tutoring site TenMarks and Highland Capital recruiting partner Craig Driscoll (that's them in the photo at left)... Massinvestor founder Michael Stern and Xconomy Boston chief correspondent Wade Roush...Vinit Nijhawan, an entrepreneur and ex-VC who mentioned that he's now the new managing director of Boston University's Office of Technology Development...and Maria Cirino of .406 Ventures, one of the evening's sponsors (I teased her about her Twitter output, which consists of just six tweets, the first of which is "and Scott Kirsner says I don't tweet...ha!")

And on my way out, I ran into Stuart Nixdorff, CEO of Newton Peripherals, chatting with Eric Paley of Founder Collective.
