Support local businesses impacted by power outages on Nov. 6

Our Sierra FoodWineArt magazine is glad to help sponsor a communitywide effort to support our local businesses impacted by the recent PG&E power outages.

Dubbed “Let’s Go Out Tonight!” western Nevada County residents are being asked to set aside Wednesday, November 6, to “visit a local restaurant, brewery, winery, bar, specialty shop or market and support local businesses that have been impacted by the recent power outages! 

“These local businesses not only feed and provide entertainment for the community, they also employ thousands of our neighbors, friends and family.  Here is our chance to show our support! Stop in for a drink, meal, or ice cream cone…every little bit helps!”

The sponsors include the Nevada City Chamber, Greater Grass Valley Chamber, Grass Valley Downtown Association, Penn Valley Chamber, The Union, KVMR, KNCO and Sierra FoodWineArt magazine.

We hope to see you out on the town! Thanks to Jesse Locks, a longtime local and director of the Nevada City Film Festival, for helping to spearhead this effort. — Jeff, Shannon and Mitchell Pelline of Nevada City

  1. Were happy to support this effort. As a retiree, the impact of these outages on us are measured by holding my finger and thumb an inch apart. The impact on working folks is immeasurable. Nov. 6 —- tip till it hurts!

  2. Wondering how many generators were bought in the last month in California. And how many were bought on time payments, because they couldn’t afford one in the first place.
    For us—-Generator providing power and hot spot on cell phone to communicate. What it’s come to. We did get a generator that runs on “duel fuel” so were running on propane @ $1.85 a gallon (Ferrell Gas) instead of $4.00 a gallon for gasoline. ………. Big whoop!

  3. For sure, support local businesses. The same as we always do, but when it comes to paying $1100 for a Honda generator locally or $805 from an eBay seller in Oregon, we can’t afford to buy locally. Some of us don’t have the financial means like others do.

  4. The program has been extended to all Wednesdays in November and December! We hope to see our friends and neighbors “on the town”!

  5. Jeff, I am planning on dinner for two at the New Moon Café on the 13th. Making the drive from Oxnard to enjoy a meal at my favorite Nevada City restaurant. Like that we can support local business too even though I live 450 miles away now. Make many trips to my former home town because of the beauty and the people. Well worth the drive.
