Literature Should Always Come With a Side of Edible Gold: The Pfister Book Club Meets Again

Doors Open at the Pfister

Doors Open Milwaukee was last weekend, a chance to explore behind-the-scenes of more than 150 buildings throughout the city. Peter Mortensen, Chief Concierge and Historian at the Pfister, gave the presentation at Doors Open. Peter has worked here for 31 years, and he’s a treasure.
