September EGG PLATE CHARITY
Milwaukee Urban League
$1 of each Egg Plate enjoyed in August & September at Blue’s in Milwaukee will go to the Milwaukee Urban League. The Milwaukee Urban League leads through education, employment, and advocacy to achieve economic vibrancy and equal access to all industries and disciplines that position African Americans to create wealth and live a better quality of life. Milwaukee Urban League’s vision is to ensure that Wisconsin becomes a top 10 place for African Americans to live and thrive and where the greater Milwaukee area becomes a leader in education and socioeconomic inclusion.
Did you know Blue’s Egg is an acronym? Breakfast and Lunch in an Urban Environment.
Our Egg Plate Charity changes every month, and it’s one of the ways we hope to help support our great community. Our goal is to provide hospitality, vision and a slice of community every day.
By supporting the needs of the community we strive to preserve the EGG: Everyone’s Good Graces. We’ve supported 91 Egg Plates Charities and more than 288 local organizations.
Black Lives Matter.
We have been trying to find the words to express our feelings and support. Words that would not ring hollow in the haste to speak out. In that search and listening to the BIPOC community, we realized we didn’t have to look further than our long-standing company values.
At Black Shoe Hospitality, our mission has always been “… to be great members of the community. Our businesses are a means to support causes, organizations and individuals in the Milwaukee area… Everyone is welcome.” And that won’t stop now.
For 13 years, we have welcomed patrons to our restaurants the best way we know how – through great food and service. To that end, we will be increasing the diversity of our food sources and staff to ensure we’re supporting and uplifting the BIPOC community.
Black Lives Matter. Everyone is welcome at Black Shoe Hospitality.

Dan Sidner of Black Shoe Hospitality blackshoehospitality.com talks with WUWM about the important connection between small businesses and local radio:
We source ingredients for quality first, and we source from local farmers and producers whenever possible. Utilizing local farmers minimizes our environmental footprint, supports the local economy and provides us with the freshest product.
