WATCH: Restaurant Thinks It Won Powerball, Then Reality Hits Hard

The dishwasher quit on the spot.

Watch workers at Grissini's Restaurant in Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey, go berserk Saturday night after they thought they had won the Powerball jackpot. You would too, wouldn't you? Bartender Charlie Poveromo did a lot of hugging. The dishwasher threw his apron to the floor and quit, a rep told The Huffington Post. The parking lot attendant called his grandmother to relay the amazing news.

But there was one teeny-tiny catch: Staffers discovered later that the numbers called off were from Wednesday's drawing, Jan. 6, not Saturday's.

Even after the dream died, Poveromo said in a press release, "What a feeling!"

But Grissini's remains undeterred. Hostess Mellis Bakir, who confirmed the videos, told The Huffington Post Tuesday that they're ready for the next drawing, on Wednesday. "Yeah, we're all playing again," she said.
