Ron has been pearl diving for Lowell’s since God was a baby, and his wrinkled fingers are proof. Back when Ron began we took the time and patience to teach him the intricacies of the art, and after several years Ron was keeping up with the best of them; almost. Ron is a legend in dish washing circles, working tirelessly to “scrape the bottoms” and “de-mess the excess”.
Ron’s abilities far surpass those of the lower primates, even though he never evolved opposable thumbs. When Ron gets through with a day’s work, several days later, we know we’ve helped him achieve one of his lifelong goals: getting out of bed by mid day and putting in a half day’s work.
Thanks Ron, never surrender!
Some other restaurateurs around town (NOT IN THE MARKET) use GMO produce in their establishments, but not here at Lowell’s.
Our own Katie Apple-Finder travels the backroads seeking out the freshest and most unique produce available for use in our creative, one-of-a-kind cocktail infusions in our 2nd floor bar/lounge.
Like the “Jorge Gigante’” here, not just any apple, the Jorge grows in the upper reaches of the dwarf apple trees that were imported in the 17th century to within 40 miles of Lowell’s, up by Tiger Mountain, where they hide beneath the pines for maximum strength of character, where all of the nutrients go into the apple and not the twigs & leaves.
Producing such unique characteristics as the white dreads and courageously assertive head size, the “Jorge Apple” is a specimen unique to Lowell’s, and Katie Apple-Finder is the super sleuth apple-finder of the Pacific Northwest,
Where else, but Lowell’s?
responsible for foraging Tiger Mountain to bring them to us, and ultimately, to you!
Thank you Katie, job well done!

When we turned Lowell’s into an art gallery with silent auction of original artworks by local artists we were able to donate over $2,000 to “Art with Heart” a local charity which evryone should look up and help support annually. It doesn’t take fundraisers and special events to take the cost of a round of drinks or daily lattes and donate it straight to the cause! BUT, we’re looking forward to planning another event so we can hopefully put this great non-profit in front of more people and generating a four figure donation again. Please watch for date and time on our blog, or go straight to the source and donate today! It will make you feel better, help beyond what you may imagine those that can’t help themselves and contribute to a whole what many people together are able to accomplish locally.
Cheer the day, cheer the children!
Philanthropists with heart!
