After handing out hundreds of flyers to promote their menu at the Fourth of the July parade and settling into a "food groove", Danny Krebs -formerly of Pergola- is leaving the Olde Fort Pub.
It was a pretty abrupt split, and surprising considering the good feedback it seemed the changes to the menu had gotten, nonetheless it seems as if we'll have to get our hummus fix elsewhere for the time being.
"It was just one of those things that wasn't going to work going forward," Krebs said. "I want to thank the city of Fort Thomas and the Arnzen's for their support. We've really been making strides with our effort here. Unfortunately, sometimes things don't work out."
"We had big plans for the outdoor seating, changing some of the layout outside to make it not just a bar with great food, but a place where families could come to eat as well," Krebs said.
It looks as though now, those plans may be put on hold.
"We'll probably take a short break on food service," said Mike Arnzen, whose family owns the Olde Fort Pub. "It wouldn't be fair to the Krebs to start back up right away. Hopefully we'll be able to get it going again soon."
Pretty disappointing, but I have no doubt all parties involved will be just fine.
