!--paging_filter--pThe devastation in Oso is still a very real thing, and continues to be on the minds of the culinary community here in Seattle./p
pNext Tuesday, April 22 (Earth Day), Tom Douglas is hosting an Oso fundraiser with all proceeds benefiting the United Way of Snohomish County, because what restoration and recovery teams really need right now a href="http://tailorednews.com/tmsubscribe.net/viewbcast.aspx?B=fwGjN=2TCl=131140" target="_blank"is cold hard cash/a! Notable restaurateursnbsp;a href="http://www.ethanstowellrestaurants.com/" target="_blank"Ethan Stowell/a and a href="http://huxleywallace.com/" target="_blank"Josh Henderson/a will be providing the food and 18 Washington wineries will be donating wine. Sub Pop co-founder Bruce Pavitt will be supplying the tunes./p
pSometimes, as weeks go by, tragedies like this become less top of mind to those not directly affected. I spoke to Mr. Douglas this afternoon. His response to that?/p
