Can one person drink at every bar in San Francisco?

Ha-Ra – Tenderloin

Why the writing on a hand? Carl was in a stellar mood tonight, and those who frequent the Ha-Ra will understand why I was hesitant to ask for anything special such as a napkin and risk upsetting his positive vibe. Instead I relaxed sans napkin while Carl entertained us with his holiday themed dirty jokes.

Carl is the one and only reason to go to the Ha-Ra, but be sure not to play any Johnny Cash on the Jukebox or interrupt him buying a drink for a lady or you will learn all too well why he has received countless “Angriest/Grumpiest Bartender” awards. Under that crusty demeanor is a teddy bear of a guy however. Just don’t tell him I said so.

    How would someone go about joining you on this quest? Been wanting to do something like this myself for a while now.

      It’s a lone quest, but I may plan some bar crawls through certain segments of my journey where people can meet up with me.

    i love Carl. HA-RA is currently my fave bar in the city. nothing fancy: just a good ol dive bar, with a true “character” dishing out drinks and jokes. but, i agree – if Carl’s not in the house, it’s pointless. good luck on your quest! and with your liver!
