Gay bears in the Twin Cities are coming out of winter hibernation—and not just because of the spring weather! On April 19, they’re heading to the EagleBOLTbar in Downtown Minneapolis for the return of the wildly popular Bearracuda, with DJ Matt Consola from San Francisco spinning. Join hundreds of furry, friendly guys for this great night. Get there early, as the cover is $5 before 10 PM and $7 after.

Started in 2006 in San Francisco, Bearracuda is the largest attended bear dance party and most prolific gay dance event in the United States. Such events take place in 38 cities across the world, including parties in San Francisco, Seattle, Portland, New York City, Austin, Atlanta, London, and Sydney. Upcoming parties include Portland Pride, June 13; Gay Pride San Francisco, June 27; Vancouver Pride, August 3; Folsom Street Friday, San Francisco, September 19; San Francisco Bear Pride, November 8; and Bearracuda Heretic Cruise 2015.

Consola is widely known as a circuit DJ, as well as a record label owner (Redzone Records). He is resident DJ at Sanctuary, Adonis, and Boy Bar in San Francisco.

The EagleBOLTbar is headquarters for the local bear community. It hosts Bear Night every fourth Saturday, which includes a beer bust 8-11 PM.
