#FindQuinn! Slows Bar BQ looking for girl who left cartoon at restaurant

Slows wants to turn the cartoon into a coloring page for kids who visit the restaurant, but not before properly thanking Quinn.

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich — Do you know a young girl named Quinn with exceptional drawing skills (and good taste in barbecue)? A barbecue restaurant in downtown Grand Rapids is trying to find her.

According to Slows Bar BQ, a very talented girl between the ages of 6 and 8, visited the restaurant in the Downtown Market, located at 435 Ionia Ave SW. 

The restaurant said it happened a few months ago and that the girl's name was Quinn. According to the restaurant, she asked a staff member for a pen and paper while she and her family dined, drawing up the cartoon. It features a pig with a bowl of food, proclaiming its love to Slows and how awesome the restaurant is.

Slows says the cartoon has been hanging on an office door inside the restaurant ever since and now, they want to turn the cartoon into a coloring page for other kids who visit the restaurant.

"We did have one of our hosts clean it up just so we could use it as a print file, but I mean it's almost identical to how she drew it. This is how she drew the pigs and everything, and we were just so taken aback and impressed on how creative she was," Ashley Ritsema, Slows' catering manager said.

But, they want to thank Quinn with some free gear and a gift card -- except Slows has to find her first! 

"We want to find them, so that we can get Quinn some swag and get their family some gift cards and stuff," Ritsema said.

Slows originally shared the cartoon on Feb.10 and re-shared again on Tuesday, Feb. 18. 

Their post on Facebook, calling out for the young artist, has been shared more than 160 times. They are using the hashtag #findquinn, as well.

There's lots of fun, winter themed things happening today and tomorr... ow with Valent-ICE at the Downtown Market ! LIVE ice carving show this afternoon, plus see 10+ food-themed ice sculptures on display through Sunday. Afterwards, head on inside and warm up with one of our delicious sandwiches!
