Well I sort of disagree. I think in the New York market, there is room for a Red Sox bar, which will draw Red Sox fans every night. (There are probably many such bars.) There may even be Boston sports bars in Cincinnati.
But the Moerlein house due to its location by necessity has to market to Reds fans, so this was a really questionable thing to do. They are insulting their main fans to, possibly, draw in a few extra fans a few days out of the year.
That said, they did apologize, and I am pretty confident they will never do this again. As I said in the first post, maybe consider getting a drink at Holy Grail, Toby Keith's, In Between Tavern, O'Malley's, or one of many bars downtown within walking distance. But there is certainly no need to boycott Moerlein. It is a really cool place that Cincinnati should be proud of.
