There's bulking up for winter and then there's Bearracuda: Winter Beef Edition. The popular event opened its 2017 at Heretic on Saturday with the perfect dance party for the season.

Bearracuda did its summer dance party in August, but this time around DJ Matt Consola took the helm. The return of Bearracuda came just a few weeks after Heretic celebrated its 25th anniversary.
