STRANGERCROMBIE WINNER! This article was bought-and-paid-for in The Stranger’s annual charity auction—which this year raised more than $50,000 for the Seattle nonprofit Treehouse, helping foster kids since 1988. Thank you, everybody!

Tuesday is Booze Day at Lowell's in Pike Place Market, which is also where the Secret Society of Pike Place Employees™ drinks the tourists away after a long day of fish slinging and produce pimping. Regular folks also drink at the cozy second-floor bar, where, if you somehow get bored with the picture-postcard view of the Olympics and Puget Sound, you can sit in a booth and watch the Foreigners on Parade in the market below. Candace, a Pike Place "honey girl," met Jeff, a Pike Place "fish boy," at Lowell's, and now, it seems, it's champagne wishes and caviar dreams for the couple. Or maybe it's just Pabst in a can and cheap champagne right out of the bottle? Either way, there's some old-Seattle magic in that bar. Hoo, if these walls could talk!

Candace says, "Wait, is it trashy to say we met in a bar?" They will receive two DOTW T-shirts. recommended
