Heretic continued its habit of being a go-to place on the night before Thanksgiving, cranking out the cocktails and the beats while raising a few bucks for charity.

Its dance party on Wednesday – a staple of Thanksgiving Eve party-goers – featured DJs Seth Breezy and Deanne. And like past ones – we've been there year after year after year after year and that one other time too – the evening benefited those Joining Hearts do-gooders. Because that non-profit's fundraising goes beyond just their poolside ab fest each summer.

The bar was rocking again on Saturday as it celebrated with a Bearracuda anniversary party.
