Fairfax, California is a groovy little town West of San Anselmo and the Marin County seat, San Rafael.  Known for it's liberal politics, redwoods and oaks, bicyclists (who think they are on the Tour de France) and its diverse and colorful population, often seen wearing tie-dyed t-shirts and burning incense.  Fairfax is also home to the most night life in Marin County, with quite the variety of small night clubs like 19 Broadway, Peri's, Café Amsterdam (which is being replaced by a revived Sleeping Lady Café) and don't forget about the Fairfax Theater. Before you go and check out all this night life, you are probably going to want to catch a meal at one of the many restaurants like Iron Springs Pub and Brewery, Fradelizio's, Ghiringelli's Pizzeria, Barefoot Café, Grilly's, Pancho Villa's...
