Jay Dini: Co-owner of Dini’s Lucky Club, Jay is a regular Big Blend Radio guest providing an inside scoop on running a casino, bar and restaurant; and along with his staff and family, shares their specialty cocktail recipes.
Part of Nevada’s history since 1933, Dini’s Lucky Club is the oldest and longest family owned and operated casino in the state. Located on Main Street, in the heart of Yerington’s historic downtown district, the casino and saloon was started after the prohibition by Joe Dini, Sr. who originally called it the Wooden Shoe Bar. It wasn’t too long after opening the doors that Joe realized he was going to need more room for the locals, and he struck a deal for the building that was once Yerington Meat Market. Renaming it Joe Dini’s Lucky Club, he expanded the bar and casino to 12 slot machines, a 21 table, roulette wheel and poker parlor.
Dini’s Lucky Club has undergone several renovations and expansions over the years. Today the fourth generation of the Dini family (along with some of their offspring), run this fun joint that’s loved by locals and visitors alike. Dini’s Lucky Club features the latest in slots, video poker and keno; Dini’s Coffee Shop serves breakfast, lunch and dinner daily; and The Cellar Bar and Lounge is a popular watering hole with tasty bar munchies.
