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.
Yelp Summer Soiree [Yelp]
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.
