Friday night about 100 muscle-y souls braved the rain to enjoy PhillyGayCalendar’s Boys of Summer 2014 kickoff pool party at North Shore Beach Club. The affair was the first in a weekend long parade of parties that raised money for the long-running LGBT events calendar. The following day there was a car wash on Camac Street (a video soon to come), followed by the big party at Voyeur nightclub and, on Sunday, an afternoon BBQ to close out the annual event. I’ve got photos of the pool party below.
Philly party producer Josh Schonewolf has a lot of great ideas, but I think this one takes the cake: Tonight is the debut of his weekly pool party at North Shore Beach Club, Drink or Swim. Schonewolf says the parties will happen every Monday throughout the summer — or until it gets cold — and feature surprise performances (drag queens! songbirds!), a revolving selection of local DJs, and your chance to see your Man Crush Monday and Woman Crush Wednesdays in the skimpiest getup imaginable.
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.
