VIEW MORE PHOTOS | 20th Anniversary & Customer Appreciation Celebration @ Heretic

imageTwo nights to celebrate its 20th anniversary wasn’t enough, so the Heretic cranked it up for one more on Monday to thank its customers and give a nod to the holiday season.

Compared to Saturday’s packed night with DJ Joe Gauthreaux, the event on Monday was decidedly lower key. There was a Santa (top photo) – who determined that bar owner Ray Collins (left) and General Manager Alan Collins (right) are more naughty than nice – as well as free (as in no charge )-flowing cocktails, noshes and a chocolate fountain to dip marshmallows and pretzels.

“We are so grateful to this community who have supported us over the years. New clubs have come and gone and you continue to support us. We are nothing without the support of the community and we sincerely thank you,” Alan Collins told us ahead of the event.
