There will be no parties at the Drake for the next few days as they have had to close due to flooding.
Jimbo Jennison said the flooding occurred in the basement where, while they do have the water heaters five feet off the ground, the water down there is about five and a half feet deep. He said once the water goes down enough to get in the basement to fix the equipment, they will be back in business.
Jimbo said the good news about this is that the actual restaurant didn’t flood. He paid a high compliment to the people who built the building back so long ago and what a great foresight they had about river flooding.
The Drake will update their Facebook page when they are able to re-open and they are hoping it will be soon.
