Jackpot is gone.
The Jackpot is closing, but probably not any time soon. I spoke with owner Michael D’Amelio, and he wanted to stress that while the guys that work there had a good laugh at “the internet rumors”, there were no plans to close it down.
This past Friday saw another installation of the themed dance parties with DJ Yes! sputnik and others that have been taking place in various venues in Downtown Raleigh. Hosted by Jibarra, this particular one was beach-themed and celebrating an early arrival of summer–which proved ironic considering the cool breeze and drizzle that was over the area.
