Maxie’s Supports The Milwaukee Film Festival
As independently owned restaurants celebrating American cuisine — from Southern to Upper Midwest to classic American brunch — we’re excited to watch these narratives set across the U.S. We hope you’ll have a chance to explore the films of the Milwaukee Film Festival, which continues through Nov. 1.
If you’re heading to Maxie’s before or after a film, show us your MFF ticket or pass to get $2 OFF a pint of Good City Brewing’s Film Fest Lager through 11/1. Maxie’s, Blue’s Egg, and Story Hill BKC are Community Partners of these specific films. Check them out — they look amazing.
Story Hill BKC — “Michelin Stars: Tales From The Kitchen” We cherish excellent restaurant experiences. These days, when everyone is obsessed with sharing statuses and posting food pics, Michelin stars remain a coveted mark of excellence. This film takes a look at what it takes to achieve this famous distinction, exploring Guide Michelin’s role in this “golden age of gastronomy.”

Maxie’s — “Satan & Adam” A celebration of the blues, the transformative power of music, and the friendships that develop when artists collaborate, Satan & Adam tells the story of a blues duo. Sterling “Mister Satan” Magee and Adam Gussow played Harlem’s sidewalks in the late ’80s and early ’90s. A celebrated debut album seemed to have them primed for stardom, but their rise was cut short by Mr. Satan’s mysterious and sudden disappearance.

Blue’s Egg — “Daughter Of Mine (Figlia Mia)” A young girl finds herself torn between two mothers in this stirring, sun-dappled drama. When Vittoria learns that her nuturing, supportive mother, Tina, is not her biological mother and, in fact, that honor belongs to the town wild child, Angelica, it kicks off a summer of simmering resentments.
