For the past few years, Hoover, and his husband, Gary Luce, have owned the adult cinema and video arcade. The couple purchased it from Shan Sayles, who died in 2016. Hoover and Luce are planning to retire to Palm Springs.

Nob Hill is planning an estate and memorabilia sale over Labor Day weekend, September 1-2.
