If you previously thought of Yelp solely as a vehicle for posting harsh reviews of that awful sushi place you just went to, you're missing out on a much better use for the site: party planner! In Marina del Rey this weekend, Yelp is throwing a party on a yacht — a free party, in fact. Featuring an array of sponsors such as Bombay Sapphire and Hamilton Wines, Rock the Yacht will have all the necessary ingredients for drinking the night away, plus food, music and other attractions. RSVPs are required, and you must have a Yelp account to attend. They're expecting a waitlist — but with parties on both Monday and Tuesday, there's no need to post a negative review just yet. Leave that for the dozens of other would-be critics on board, why don't you? 13755 Fiji Way, Marina del Rey; Mon.-Tues., Sept. 16-17, 6-9 p.m.; free with required RSVP. Yelp.com/events/marina-del-rey-yelps-rock-the-yacht.

Mon., Sept. 16, 6-9 p.m.; Tue., Sept. 17, 6-9 p.m., 2013
