Patrick Lowery, owner of The Good Luck Bar & Grill, was born in St. Charles, grew up in O'Fallon, MO (back when it had about three stop lights) and after graduating from St. Dominic's High School in '83 (Go Crusaders!) left the Midwest to further his education. He bounced around at a few universities and wound up graduating from a small art school in Dover, NJ where he studied animation.
He eventually made his way to Los Angeles, and got into film work. After spending 15+ years in animation that allowed him to work on movies like Star Wars, Lord of the Rings and Spider-Man, with a few years installing solar panels and bartending to break things up, he decided to leave Hollywood to pursue a new goal, his own bar & grill! Here's a couple pics of him and some links if you'd like to learn more about his checkered past.
