THE EVENT: The Omni Shoreham Hotel gala honored a golden era in Washington and the hotel's 75th anniversary. "Every person I know today, I met at the Shoreham," said Mark Russell, who performed his comedy and music routine followed by the legendary Frankie Condon Orchestra (far more punctual than Rudy Vallee, who opened the Shoreham in 1930 and didn't show until 4 a.m.).

THE SCENE: A video montage sent approximatly 400 guests down Shoreham's memory lane with views of the many events that took place there including a celebration for Joe DiMaggio's 56-game winning streak, visits from world leaders, King Saud's fl eet of 32 limousines and the fi lming of The Pelican Brief.

THE GUESTS:Esther Coopersmith, Bill and Betsey Delphos, Debbie Dingell, Knight Kiplinger, Ann Pacious, Lucky Roosevelt and general manager Todd Scartozzi.
