It’s Irish Month at Blue’s Egg!

Stop by before your St. Patrick’s celebrations or any time during the month of March to check out daily specials inspired by Irish cuisine. While we always have our Dubliner Benedict, we’re digging a little deeper into the food of the Emerald Isle.

Specials change daily, but some of the creations we’ve enjoyed include an Irish Boxty, Fried Oysters and Eggs, the Dublin Lawyer Omelette, A Brilliant Stout Benny, Guinness Browns, our own house-made Bangers, and lots of awesome Irish cheese, like Kerry Gold Dubliner and Irish Porter Cheddar.

Italian Month at Blue’s

Blue’s Egg is exploring Italian food and Italian-inspired brunch creations through the month of February. This is the first time we’re featuring the varied and influential cuisine of Italy for one of our month-long parades of daily specials.

We’ve made our own Pappardelle pasta, Porchetta, Italian Sausage, Giardiniera, and Ciabatta and Focaccia bread to use in dishes. A big hit was the Filetti di Sogliola con Caponata — pan-seared sole filet with caper caponata and blackberry-red wine reduction. We put Bolognese on a Benedict!

Dec. 5 – Double Points Day Meets Holiday Gift Cards

Tuesday, Dec. 5 is a Double Points Day for members of our Best Guest Club — and happens to fall during our holiday gift card promotion, which includes a $20 complimentary card with every $100 gift card purchase.

You can earn Double Points and rewards on top of bonus complimentary cards when you buy Black Shoe Hospitality gift cards this Tuesday. If you’re not yet a member of our Best Guest Club, we can sign you up quickly when you visit on Dec. 5.

Our Best Guest Club offers points toward rewards on every time you dine at our restaurants, shop for wine at Story Hill BKC’s shop, or purchase gift cards. Points are earned on non-discounted items, and every 140 points earns a $10 credit for the following visit.

Example: $100 gift card purchase = $20 bonus comp card, and (2x points) $10 reward. That’s $30 back on $100!

Example: $200 gift card purchase = $40 bonus comp cards, and (2x points) $20 reward. That’s $60 back on $200!

The bonus complimentary card is good on dining and drinking, but not at the shop at Story Hill BKC, and valid on the next day following purchase. We can only make this offer available on-site at Maxie’s, Blue’s Egg, and Story Hill BKC, and cannot make this offer on online gift card sales.

Blue’s Celebrates Mexico in September

MEXICO

As we’ve done in the past, Blue’s Egg is celebrating the culinary heritage of Mexico through the month of Septiembre!

Chefs Americo, Victor, Scott, and Joe are exploring the region cuisines and ingredients. We’ve already seen creations such as: Enchiladas Con Mole Guajillo, Benedicto De Lengua De Res, Huaraches de Tinga, Al Pastor Benny, Tres Leches French Toast, Chicharrones En Salsa Verde, and Cochinita Pibil. We done versions of our favorite Browns: Escabeche Browns, Fiesta Browns, and Elote Browns.

Our goal is to serve the best brunch, and we hope you’ll enjoy some of the best Mexican food in Milwaukee this month at Blue’s!

Black Shoe Texas BBQ for Harvey Relief

July is French Month at Blue’s Egg

Because Paris is probably hot and crowded right now, and because everybody takes August off, and because we can’t afford to fly you all to a château in the South of France… we’re going to do this!

We’ve had a lot of Frenchie fun in previous years, and we’re planning to bring out the best dishes from our exploration of this rich and varied cuisine.

Stop by any day this month to try some French specials — except Tuesday, July 4, that’s America’s day. Blue’s Egg will be closed on the Fourth of July. Our other restaurants, Maxie’s and Story Hill BKC, also are closed for the holiday, but Maxie’s will be at Tosa Tonight for the City of Wauwatosa’s Civic Celebration, a free concert by ABBA salute Dancing Queen and FIREWORKS.

Our friends from Maxie’s will also be serving at Milwaukee’s celebration of France, Bastille Days, in Cathedral Square park, July 13-16. Let’s have some fun as we celebrate the country that invented restaurants!
