It was a robust discussion at the December Civic Cocktail, where the conversation swayed from heavy to light with guests King County Executive Dow Constantine and chef Tom Douglas. Constantine discussed the homelessness crisis, his commitment to welcoming Syrian refugees and the Best Starts for Kids levy. Douglas weighed in on the impact of Seattle's $15 minimum wage on the restaurant industry, discussed the veg-centric food trend and offered holiday food tips. Plus, host Joni Balter asks what is Douglas' favorite vegetable, and would Constantine consider a run for governor?
