Today’s the big day. It’s opening night of the Milwaukee Film festival and the Pfister is ready to walk the red carpet.
If we had to pick a recommendation of what to see this year at the festival, it would have to be Kings of Pastry, featuring our very own Pastry Chef, Kurt Fogle.

Here’s the film’s description and trailer.
Once every four years come the Olympics, the World Cup… and the Meilleurs Ouvriers de France. The what? The striped collar worn by The Best Craftsmen in France is more than the ultimate recognition for every pastry chef—it is a dream and an obsession. Influential documentarians D.A. Pennebaker and Chris Hegedus profile three chefs during the intense days leading up to the judgment of their art. These sultans of sugar concoct edible edifices that must satiate both the eye and the palate in order for the creators to become one of the Kings of Pastry.
At the Pfister, medical we are proud to be part of the community of Milwaukee. We encourage everyone, both locals and visitors to explore our great city and see what it has to offer. Newer technologies and mobile applications like Foursquare, allow you to see Milwaukee in a whole new way. It aims to encourage people to explore their neighborhoods and then rewards people for doing so.
The Pfister Hotel is happy to announce that we will now be offering a Foursquare special to our guest.
By starting and/or ending your night at the Pfister Hotel, when you check in on Foursquare at Blu on the 23rd floor of the Pfister Hotel, inform your server or bartender to receive complimentary parking in our attached structure for up to five hours with any purchase.
Just make a relevant comment on any post from the Pfister Hotel and include a valid contact information on the form. From all the comments on the Pfister Blog, we’ll select five winners to receive a set of four tickets to see Cabaret at the Milwaukee Rep valid September 14 to October 17. The winners will be chosen at random from all of the blog comments.
This is your opportunity to share your thoughts with us. We encourage everyone to do so.

Ardith Richter: For the last 25 years, there are 5 times in a year that I have sat and just watched the spirits of the past. Miss my dear friend, Miss Betty.
Scott Heun: About 3 months ago I enjoyed a shakers martini at Blu with Mike Smith and a great pizza and a Spotted Cow from New Glarus in the lobby bar. The best lobby in the country!
Christine Butt: We love the Pfister lobby bar. We have a tradition of coming and watching the Christmas decorations go up in the hotel. Then we love to come for your Christmas Open house when Santa & Mrs. Claus are there.
Chrissy Jaworski: As a little girl, I used to come with my school music group and perform on the steps of the staircase in the Pfister lobby. Now I’m an event planner and I do business with you frequently!
