The Spot! Friday nights at Coffee Roasters

Fairfax will open its first Teens Only coffee house at the Coffee Roasters, Bolinas and Broadway. "The Spot" is happening Friday nights at Coffee Roasters, 8-11 p.m., Dec. 15, 22, & 29.

Music, games, raffles and great prizes. Admission: $5 at the door, includes a coupon for a beverage and a dessert.

The innovative new teen-oriented hang out is designed to solve a problem that has plagued the County for years: How to end the disasters of teen drinking? Head of the Fairfax Youth and Alcohol Task Force, Council Member Mary Ann Maggiore, was fed up with the helplessness of watching kids get in trouble because of alcohol. "Every year we watch with horror as the holiday season fills our lives with reports of teen deaths, accidents and rapes at parties where alcohol is the number 1 culprit. Though many groups start with initiating punitive actions as the first line of defense against teen drinking, we of Fairfax saw a better way ."

Please join the Town Youth and Alcohol Task Force and Drake Leadership who are sponsoring these Friday night events!
