Yelp, the people who have most recently brought us heat maps of where the hipsters hang, is throwing a big party on Wednesday, July 10th at the North Shore Beach Club in Northern Liberties. The party, which is open to anyone with a Yelp account (with a real name) is free to attend with a suggested donation of $10 to Yelp’s charity partner, the Gesu School. Once inside, there will be free food (Pod, Minar Palace, Nomad Pizza, Circles Thai, to name a few ), drink (Tito’s Vodka, Narragansett, Weyerbacher, among others) and other free services.
The party runs from 9:30 to 11:30 p.m. and RSVPs are accepted on the Yelp Summer Soiree page. The RSVP list will close at noon on Tuesday, July 9th, so don’t delay.

The Havana Room in Northern Liberties opens tonight. The restaurant replaces last year’s Chenango as the former Arrow Swim Club is being reborn as North Shore Beach Club.
The new restaurant will bring Cuban fare to the indoor/outdoor space along Germantown Avenue behind the Piazza at Schmidts. Look for ceviches, empanadas and chicharones to start. For a main course try the braised oxtail, plantain crusted snapper or suckling pig. A full bar will offer a special mojito menu with ten varieties to choose from.
Check out the Havana Room’s Facebook page for a glimpse of what will be on Chef Angel Diaz Rivera’s menu.
Brian Nagele, owner of philly2night.com and Kings Oak on the Piazza has taken over the Arrow Swim Club and has announced the private club will now be known as the North Shore Beach Club.
The 21-and-over swim club has slashed last year’s membership fee in half. The club which will be open from May 1st through October 31st will cost $500 this season.
Applications are now being accepted.
