Scene Last Night: Paulson, Petraeus, Brand, Barth, Kapito, Och

bloomberg.com — Tap for Slideshow December is for counting bonuses. Last night it was also for counting mensches and "two mensches in the making," as Brett Barth described his nine-year-old sons at the UJA-Federation of New York's Wall Street Dinner. For years, near the time Wall Street firms have handed out big lump sums, this event has tapped donors in finance.

Scene Last Night: Blankfein, Femenia, West, Winklevoss

Corbats Prepare for Duke and Duchess of Cambridge Visit

Scene Last Night: Dubin, Kiernan, Tudor Jones, Barakett

bloomberg.com — Tap for Slideshow The closing of hedge funds this year didn't affect fundraising for the Dubin Breast Center's fourth annual benefit, according to its namesake.

Scene Last Night: Gumbel, Plepler, Zucker, Sulzberger, Freston

Scene Last Night: Netflix’s Sarandos, Keaton, Hawke, Poitras

Scene Last Night: Och Challenge, Asness, Fey, Cantor, Lutnick

bloomberg.com — Tap for Slideshow It's hard to imagine the UJA-Federation of New York's Wall Street Dinner without Alan "Ace" Greenberg on the dais.

Scene Last Night: Clinton, Schwarzman, Corzine, Neidich, Diamond

bloomberg.com — Tap for Slideshow Steve Schwarzman had a granddaughter yesterday morning. Last night he sat one table away from new grandmother Hillary Clinton.

Scene Last Night: Staley, Tina Fey, Bok, Che, Bruno Mars
