Lefty's on State Street is Closed

Lefty's Pizza on State Street near the capitol is closed. Friday night the pizzaria is hosting a goodbye event for customers. That's too bad, I always liked going over there for lunch.

They've been raising prices and cutting corners on food/portions since we first tried them back in 2003-ish. Their owners were also leaders in cheap-basterdism.

To all of you "anonymous" people,who get your info from your butts, Leftys never raised its prices in all 4 1/2 years, they were one of the only clubs who consistently gave their bands their guarantee, and NEVER paid employees under the table. How easy it is to act knowledgable when you don't know anything and can't spell....

I loved Lefty's pizza, but I'll tell you, that was all I loved. You couldn't get a pizza-to-go for love or money if they had something going on-- and they were pretty rude about it too. Terrible on the phone, have to track down someone to take your money when you get there, blah. Since the Kerry/Edwards rally I've been sort of rooting for them to close up anyway.

I'll just go to Straight From New York, nicest help anywhere, and they sell pizza to you even! Maybe I'll try out Christo's too.

Dear Eddie I had the unfortunate experance of working for Jon & Karen. They were always trying to get us to work "off the books". Some did it some did not. And I can not even begin to tell you how many phone calls I personally had to deal with from bands or other acts that did not get thier contracted amount. We did raise prices twice in the nine months or so that I worked for them.

Never cared for their pizza. The place felt like Applebee's or Planet Hollywood - someone spent way too much time designing and decorating. Great clubs never look like Red Robin. The contrived marketing and advertising felt...well...contrived.

Definitely an uncomfortable place to watch a show. The decor felt like a Las Vegas Burger King. One of the owners kept bugging us at a show "isn't this great? Aren't you glad we brought this act?"...not my style. I would prefer to drive to Portland. There are 100 better places (litterally 100) to see shows.

Hopefully someone will take over the lease and strip the place down to barebones and create a nice club. The college kids would love to have a cool place to hang out and see shows. I am sure the older crowd would too.

Just my $.02.

Why they go out of b usines any way? I thought they were buku rich from selling their fertilizer company. Did they get tired of the busines? Losing their shirts? What.

My brother and I have been considering a nice wisky bar with food and shows.
