Hotel Congress Honors Tiger On His 80th Birthday

Posted By on Wed, May 29, 2013 at 9:07 AM

On Tuesday, Hotel Congress was buzzing with friends, family and staff as they celebrated Tom "Tiger" Ziegler's 80th birthday. Ziegler has been working at Hotel Congress as a bartender inside the Tap Room for over 54 years. In honor of Ziegler's birthday Hotel Congress renamed the Tap Room as Tiger's Tap Room and gave him a large cake with his namesake on it.

"I am speechless, " said Ziegler. "It's like a dream come true, like you have to pinch yourself to see if it is true."
