    No thanks.
    No one should go there. But lots of people who haven't been there would love it.

    That's kind of silly. Yes, they made a stupid marketing mistake, but if you want to go there, you should still do it. You should at least go and ask for a free apology beer.

    I'm totally going to ask for an apology beer.

    I bet they give me one.

    I don't see whats to be so upset about, if the Cubs didn't pack the Reds park repeatedly this probably wouldn't be a marketing gimmick.

    You don't see a problem with a Cincinnati based establishment within a baseballs throw of the Reds stadium catering to opposing fans?

    That's a shame. I'm a big fan of Christian Moerlein. Seeing the ad, I don't see how anyone can view it as anything other than marketing for the Cubs fans.

    Maybe as an apology to Reds fans, they should change the name of the place to "Burgerville" for the Cubs series. For those who don't know, Waite Hoyt used to refer to the Sun Deck at Crosley Field as "Burgerville" for Reds sponsor Burger Beer.

    Nope, they probably know from experience that Cub fans will be out in force.

    It shouldn't have been a marketing gimmick in the first place. Cincinnatians are the lifeblood for the place. Don't do something to tick them off just for a boost over a three game series. Who does the marketing for them, Herb Tarlek and Arthur Carlson?

    If I were running Moerlein Lager House, I'd seriously think about a) getting a new marketing firm, pronto, and b) coming up with some big event to counter the bad pr.

    I think you're overestimating the casual fan giving two flips about this or never going to the place again because of it, but I guess we'll see.

    I would say that a lot of Reds fans would avoid the place, at least during the Cubs series, just so that they don't have to deal with a bunch of annoying Cubs fans.

    Nope. It's a business, just like the Cincinnati Reds. And I have news for you: the Reds don't care about you unless you're willing to spend money on them. You owe them no allegiance (unless you want to).

    Haven't had the opportunity yet to go there, would love to, but the above is why I "boycott" these places on game day. Not because of a wrong-headed ad done without first engaging the brain.

    I got a buddy who makes up these really nifty little stink bombs. Yeah it's childish, but every once in awhile he'll drop one at work, on the assembly line, to "liven" up the place. Man do they smell horrid!

    We can always pay a quick visit to Wrigley South!

    I really miss SCRedsFan. Been to a RZ get-together with him when they played the Cubs. He hated the Cubs (fans) with a passion not matched by many, and let them know it when any walked in the bar.
