I'd just be happy if Cincinnati's Montgomery Ribs just moved here. They are the best ribs anywhere (biggest pork consumer in US)...

The best ribs I've eaten to this day were at Cincinnati's Barn Rib Pit. They have only 8 tables, and it is tucked away in an alley in downtown. Many famous people have eaten there (according to the photos on the wall, lol).

Is there a specific time frame for us to recoup the $22 million we are giving as incentives? That's a lot of money to get back before we show a profit for this maneuver.

Normally businesses are enticed by tax incentives and not huge payoffs. I wonder how much we spent on the DNC that we will recover? I wonder when was the last time an auditor checked out these strange events. Whatever happened to the millions specifically given for the trolley for Trade St. to Elizabeth?
Overall, I believe that it was a good investment. Sometimes you have to spend money to make money. Hopefully this is a winning investment.

Stealing the Cincinnati, or better yet, Cleveland Orchestra would be epic.
