My friends and I have December birthdays and have gotten into the tradition of going out for a special dinner during this month. We're teachers, so don't want to break the bank, but we like someplace festive with great cocktails and food. We've done Trader Vic's (the original location in Emeryville), Fork in San Anselmo, and a couple times, The Buckeye Roadhouse. We'd like to try someplace new this year, preferably within 15 minutes or so of San Rafael (doesn't have to BE in San Rafael). Any suggestions? Must have good cocktails, no beer and wine only (we're teachers, remember?)! Thanks!
