What is an Internet Sweepstakes Cafe? Just the name of a place that happens to have WiFi? Or does the "sweepstakes" mean something more? Never heard of it before your post.

one of those *businesses* was busted and closed down on Wilkinson Blvd. earlier this year...
I do think they eventually reopened...all it is, is more illegal gambling.
