Event planner Andre Wells with Chadleon Booker
After an extensive renovation, Eden opened its new first-floor Green Room this week, inviting local notables to experience a completely tech-orated lounge, complete with digitally generated waterfalls, woods and a virtual Koi pond.
Tempted by the invitation of an open bar soiree, the crowd gathered to check out the venue's au-naturale new appearance.

Redskins dentist Alex Naini "loved the whole thing," especially seeing the virtual koi scatter as she set her drink on the bar.
And distinguished event organizer Andre Wells (pictured top with Chadleon Booker), perhaps the harshest critic at the VIP unveiling, gave the venue a noble nod, describing the creative decor as "cute" -- and lingering for a few extra cocktails.
