The hoffbrau house was being planned to go at the corner of mehring and elm. Because of parking numbers with the bengals it was proving difficult to get done. (Based on an agreement the county signed with the bengals and the city tried to change at the time). The city had one person in charge of bringing the hoffbrau house to cicninnati and had spent a lot of time convincin them to come to the area. In a bit of a surprise that person quit the ciity began working for hoffbrau and took the project to kentucky.
Wish we did have the acquirium and hoffbrau house also. Glad we didn't get the imax theatre
