History[edit]

Dini's was founded in downtown Yerington 1933 as the Wooden Shoe Club by Giuseppe "Joe" Dini, Sr., in 1938 it moved and was renamed "Joe Dini's lucky club." In 1960 the business was purchased by Joe Dini, Jr.,[4] Giuseppe's son, who would later become the longest serving member in Nevada State Assembly history.[5] Following a series of expansions and acquisitions of buildings adjacent to the existing property, Dini's has expanded to include a main casino, restaurant, and bar & lounge.[4] Dini's is now owned by Joe Jr.'s two sons George and Jay.[6]
