Bringing guys together to kick off the weekend is what Heretic does best. When it’s Joining Hearts weekend, gathering gays becomes the Cheshire Bridge hotspot’s super power.

Tthe bar brought out the big guns on Friday with DJ Ralphi Rosario. There was plenty of party to be had before Saturday’s Joining Hearts main event, and Rosario laid down his own superpower to ramp up guests for one of Atlanta’s biggest gay weekends. As with all of the weekend's associated events, a portion of proceeds went to AID Atlanta and Jerusalem House.
