Daring and baring makes Heretic’s Halloween howl

Add this share
Midtown Atlanta’s gay dance bar is ready and down for a good time any weekend. When it came time for Halloween, Heretic didn’t have to get ready because it was born ready.

The fun started Friday with DJ Alex Ramos. He helmed the DILF Make Me Howl party, where our cameras caught the naughty, nice, and well, no just naughty costumes in the gallery below. The next night, DJ Mike Pope spun the $1,500 costume contest, emceed by Misti Shores.

As we say, Heretic never skips a beat. That means dancing queens already have a green light to this Friday’s Calavera Day of the Dead Bash with Fuego Productions. Hot on its heels are Saturday afternoon’s Randy Tea Dance and the Deviant Glow Stick Party that night.
