Got the Monday blues? The Hilton might have an answer.

Beginning today, June 8, the Monarch Lounge, inside Hilton Milwaukee City Center, will offer "Maki Mondays," a sushi-filled event featuring chefs from Izumi's serving up fresh, made-to-order rolls for guests every Monday from 5 to 9 p.m. throughout the summer.

Guests can revel in the experience of relaxing in the beautiful art deco lounge while enjoying sashimi, sushi and more from the special menu, with prices ranging from $5 to $11 per roll.  There will also be happy hour drink specials, including $5 wines, $5 mixed rail drinks and $2.50 tap beers.

Lori is an avid cook whose accrual of condiments and spices is rivaled only by her cookbook collection. Her passion for the culinary industry was birthed while balancing A&W root beer mugs as a teenage carhop, fed by insatiable curiosity and fueled by the people whose stories entwine with each and every dish. She’s had the privilege of chronicling these tales via numerous media, including OnMilwaukee and in her book “Milwaukee Food.” Her work has garnered journalism awards from entities including the Milwaukee Press Club. 

When she’s not eating, photographing food, writing or recording the FoodCrush podcast, you’ll find Lori seeking out adventures with her husband Paul, traveling, cooking, reading, learning, snuggling with her cats and looking for ways to make a difference.
