Katherine Piro and Brett Despotovich went down for the opening party at the Rapture Cafe on the lower east side. The night was decked out with everything from dirty portrait drawings by Amanda Pearson, for those who dared, and three lovely ladies walking the room clothed from a little to as little as possible!
