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.
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!
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.
Black Shoe Texas BBQ for Harvey Relief
at Blue’s Egg
Thursday, Sept. 7
5 p.m. – 8 p.m.
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!
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?
We’re exploring the most enigmatic and dynamic of spirits with a special “Ginner” at Blue’s Egg. An educational exploration of New World vs. Old World and everything in between, our gin dinner features an hors d’oeuvres reception reception and four-course dinner paired with gin cocktails.
We’ll enjoy cocktails crafted with unique products, including Beefeater 24, a London Dry gin steeped for 24 hours with Japanese and Chinese teas and citrus botanicals; Tanqueray Bloomsbury, a Juniper-forward London Dry based on an 1880s recipe; and Driftless Glen Double Cask, aged in new charred oak and used bourbon barrels in Baraboo, Wisconsin. We’ve also linked up with Black Dot, Twisted Path, and Plymouth.
Badger Liquor cocktail impresario Tripp Duval will introduce cocktails, ideas, and history about each featured cocktail, including the Sloe Gin Fizz, Negroni, Gin Gimlet, and the French 75.
Friday, June 9, 6:30 p.m., $85; includes hors d’oeuvres reception and four-course dinner paired with gin cocktails; gratuity and tax not included. Call Blue’s Egg at 414-299-3180 for reservations; reservations required.

We’re always looking for a reason to bring out our dance floor – so we’re already dreaming of all the great end-of-the-year parties to come. As you’re thinking about your next big event, it’s important to keep in mind that we can do nearly anything.
Blue’s Egg is available for fully private evening events. It’s not just for breakfast anymore! Our chefs craft classic American fine-dining dinners in cocktail, buffet, and family-style formats. And if you’ve never been to a Private Party at Blue’s, you will be amazed at the elegant, modern dining space.
If you’re hosting a cocktail party, you could bring as many as 120 of your friends – and we’ll bring an extra bartender. You could preorder a plated menu, and really go big with steakhouse-style options.
Family-style might be the move for a more fun dining experience. And everybody knows you’re in for a great meal when you see a big ol’ buffet.
And if we don’t have the options, date, and time available, check out the options at Maxie’s or Story Hill BKC. Contact Yolanda Doney at 414-336-1005 or [email protected] to reserve your date.
