How do I approach management for a raise in salary?

I am an hourly worker at a hotel. I work graveyard shift for around 4 months now. I was started at a lower wage during the "probationary period" of 90 days. I can't say I've been exemplary, but I'm also consistent and in a constant state of improvement over my time here. I also make around $2 an hour less than the state average for a night auditor in this class of hotel. Should I email a request? Should I wait for the 6 month mark? Or just suck it up and be happy I have a job I legitimately enjoy in this state of economy? Your thoughts are greatly appreciated, Thank you.

Oh gosh I don't think that you should ask for a raise til you've been there a year. Seriously. Most places give annual reviews and people get their raises then. If you like the job and the company suck it up for now but then come review time I'd gently bring up the more money thing.
