“The bib, the lemon, the fork… The theater with the steep sloping driveway doesn’t just open its mouth and sing – it also opens its mouth and eats. Cinnabar’s Chili Cook-Off is the stuff of legend, and their Taste of Petaluma event gets more popular by the year. So it’s no doubt they’re gonna open the curtain on a fine crab feed. Salad, bread, and dessert round out the menu, with Lagunitas on the sudsy stuff.”
– North Bay Bohemian
