Crowdfunding campaign launched for flood repair at Lefty’s Grill

“Everyone from Nevada County and surrounding areas who has been to Lefty’s Grill in Nevada City, knows how much dedication John and Chris have to their restaurant,” according to a GoFundMe campaign launched this week.

“All the work they have done and support they have given to their employees and the community is far and beyond. On January 8, 2017, with all the rain we received, their whole lower level with patio has flooded. It will cost THOUSANDS in repairs and employees will be out of work until repairs are done. With how much they have helped the community and dedication to their business, let’s help out a business we all LOVE.”

The link to make a donation is here. We were glad to make a donation and hope our friends and neighbors at Lefty’s can reopen soon.

  1. This property has flooded in the past.
    Kirby’s had a yellow ribbon tied around one of the pillars in the dining room so that customers could see where the water line was.
    That close to the creek and knowing the possibility of flooding, one would assume the building’s owner would have to have insurance to cover the damage.

  2. Does anybody know the history of the building?. My guess is that the lower part of the building was designed to withstand flooding and was probably used for storage with stuff that could be removed when there was flooding. It is built in a creek bed with a recent history of flooding. I was around in those days and remember it well.

    Any contribution from local historians would be appreciated.
