Heretic has made a habit out of being one of gay Atlanta’s destinations on the night before Thanksgiving. The confluence of everyone off work but not quite ready for Thursday obligations packs the place each year.

The Thanksgiving tradition continued on Wednesday with DJ Sin Morera in the house pumping beats so the dancing queens could work up a calorie deficit before Thanksgiving gorging the next day. Between dancing and cocktailing, cuties rocked Heretic’s patio and bar areas for the unofficial start to Atlanta’s gay holiday season.
