Anita's Bar and Grill, named after everyone's favorite drag queen, Anita Bump, officially opens today for business, but last night there was a cocktail party to kick things off. The place is in the Hollywood Super Center. Anita was there looking gorgeous and working the crowd, which seemed to be enjoying the open bar. In fact, when the free drinks dried up, half the crowd split. I missed the appetizers, so I can't report on the food, but I plan to stop by for some "drag queen chicken" soon. - Cathy Matusow
