NUTTY JERRY’S: WHAT IS IT?
Southeast Texas largest entertainment complex to open September 18th
WINNIE TEXAS – The question that has been on Beaumont area billboards for the last two months is about to be answered. Nutty Jerry’s: What is it?
Nutty Jerry’s is a 60,000 square foot multi-purpose entertainment complex, currently under construction at the corner of Englin Road and Highway 73 in Winnie Texas. Jerry Nelson is Nutty Jerry, and he has big plans for his new club.
“For years I wanted to have a facility in this area, where we could rodeo, bull ride, have concerts, And make it affordable to the General Public” said Nelson. “After years of playing with this idea, I finally pulled the trigger…. Nutty Jerry’s will offer Southeast Texas more variety of music and entertainment, as well as a dining environment, never before seen here.”
The original concept for Nutty Jerry’s started out as the Double J Rodeo Palace in 1993. Jerry hosted PRCA Rodeos and Professional Bull Rider events in the semi-enclosed arena. As the popularity of his rodeos grew, Nelson started to book major concert acts in conjunction with his rodeos. In the early and mid 90’s people came from all over Texas to see acts as diverse as Paul Rogers and Bad Company, Johnny Winter and Ray Price. After building a successful national touring rodeo and bull riding business, Nelson acquired the SETX Mavericks professional basketball team in 2008. After two successful basketball seasons, including winning the 2010 ABA Championship, Jerry started to envision a new venue to showcase basketball…but why stop at basketball? What about concerts? What about rodeo and bull riding? What about anything to show people a good time…
Nutty Jerry’s is unlike any club in the Golden Triangle area! The fully air-conditioned Nutty Jerry’s will have 8 acres of parking for easy access. The main distinction that will separate Nutty Jerry’s from other venues is the 60,000 square foot main floor which will provides ample space for any type of event. There is virtually not a bad seat in the house! Customers will be able to take in shows from an upper level VIP seating section, bleacher seating and VIP floor seating. Nutty Jerry’s will have the largest sound and light show of any club between Houston and New Orleans and customers will be able to watch the show via many large-screen video monitors.
Nutty Jerry’s is also the new home of the ABA Champion Southeast Texas Mavericks. Nutty Jerry’s acquired the original basketball floor form the Philadelphia Spectrum for the Mavericks’ home games. The legendary ABA star Julius Erving first played on the floor that will be installed at Nutty Jerry’s. In addition to top notch entertainment, Nutty Jerry’s will feature 3 full service bars serving beer wine and frozen drinks. Nutty Jerry will also feature a full service restaurant serving a mix of Seafood, Steaks, Chicken and Barbeque dishes. Weekly specials will be offered.
