The Annual Deli Nite to benefit Nevada County Jewish Community Center is from 5 to 8 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 24, at the Nevada City Elks Lodge, 518 State Highway 49.

The event features traditional New York-style Jewish deli food including pastrami, corned beef, salami, kosher hot dogs, authentic Jewish rye bread, potato salad, cole slaw, pickles and New York cheesecake.

This authentic food is specially ordered and flown in and is not available anywhere else in Northern California. Vegetarian lasagna and salad will also be available.

Coffee and soft drinks are included and beer and wine will be for sale. T

Music will also be offered from pianist Joe Hammel and his “Swingtime Combo.”

This annual event, a fundraiser for the Nevada County Jewish Community Center, was inspired by a dream to create a traditional New York-style Jewish deli for one special night in Nevada County.

For many people from New York and Los Angeles, the delicious, familiar food is quite nostalgic.

For people who have never had an opportunity to experience this cuisine, the event is an opportunity to try it.

Tickets are $25 for adults ($30 at the door), $15 for children under 12 and children 3 and under are free.

Tickets are on sale at BriarPatch and The Bookseller in Grass Valley or online at

For more information, contact or call (530) 477-1275.
