Can one person drink at every bar in San Francisco?

Cinnabar – Tenderloin

Cinnabar was the first stop on a mini “Heart of the Tenderloin” bar crawl. The corner of Ellis and Jones is no joke, so I wrangled five of my friends into coming along with me. To my surprise, Cinnabar was actually the tamest of the bars we hit, but it was also fairly early in the evening.

Cinnabar has no shortage of entertainment, including enough dice cups for a small army of gamblers.

My friend thought these eggs were for making fancy pants drinks with egg whites. Thinking myself better schooled in the culture of dive bars, I suggested they were hard boiled eggs for snacking. We were both wrong. Apparently they are baby birds (ducks?) still in the egg, which the bartender boils up to order. I was unable to convince any of my friends to try one, but we were told they taste like crab.

All in all, good times were had at Cinnabar, although I was happy when the time came to say goodbye to Ellis and Jones.
