Bear Pride opens with scruffy sexy Bearracuda

Add this share

The bears flooded Heretic on Friday with their beefy mangoodness, welcoming the scruffy sexy Bearracuda party back just in time to open Atlanta Bear Pride. 

London-based DJ Louis Lennon crossed the pond to kick off his tour with the Bearracuda crew in Atlanta. It’s at least the second time he’s made the trek to Heretic; he joined the Bearracuda madness for its anniversary party in September 2014.

And it was just last November that we were celebrating Bearracuda’s anniversary, fondly remembering that time years back when the scruffy party for bears first came a calling and started its open relationship with Heretic.

The weekend-long celebration of Atlanta Bear Pride continued on Saturday with the Ready 4 Hope Bear-B-Q, also at Heretic, Bear Invasion at Jungle on Saturday, a Beef Bar party at Mary’s on Sunday and the closing party later that night at Eagle. Between all of those were after hour parties at Xion and sexy playtime at Manifest.
