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

We are hosting a buffet next week to benefit Hurricane Harvey relief and recovery at Blue’s Egg. We are able to do this through the generosity of our vendors, who have committed to donate product, and some Black Shoe Hospitality staff members, who will donate their time to staff the event.

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!

It’s That Time of Year Again — Patio Season!

The sun’s out and the patio’s popping! Through summer, we’ll serve brunch on the patio Monday through Friday, weather permitting.

On Saturday and Sunday, it’s a patio bar and lounging area with coffee, mimosas and one of Milwaukee’s Best Bloody Marys, weather permitting.

Blue’s was named one of “8 Great Milwaukee Brunch Spots for Long, Languid Weekend Mornings,” — what could be more summery than drinks on the patio?
