Anyone who\'s anyone was at the Opera VIP opening last night, located at 1400 I Street NW. The whole place is a big light show (designed by renowned nightlife designer Francois Frossard), making it one of the most unique-looking lounges in DC and worth the months of waiting.

Socialite Katherine Kennedy made a strong re-emergence on the social scene after bring MIA all summer. She had a table, and was handing Patron XO shots to the likes of LivingSocial\'s Eddie Frederick, beau Grant Allen, and Jon Mervis of Mervis Diamond Importers.

The bartenders and cocktail waitresses were very attractive and friendly young ladies
