Here is a Chicago Tribune article, via Yahoo:

The main topic is the opening of a new aquarium in Atlanta, the biggest in the country, from the view of the home of the current title-holder, Shedd aquarium in Chicago. However, the article touches on efforts to build aquariums in other cities, also.
"Aquariums have become a popular centerpiece, particularly in cities that are trying to build or revitalize tourist areas."

One has to wonder if this supports Landry's strategy (the article specifically mentions the Denver aquarium, and the financial trouble that caused them to sell to Landry's) or if this may mean that "everyone" will have an aquarium, and they will lose status as a destination.

One other note: Landry's aquariums in Houston and Denver are accredited by the American Zoo and Aquarium Association. The accreditations are under subsidiary corporations, not Landry's overall.
