State senators went into an unusual amount of detail about their alcohol habits Friday morning as they debated a measure that would allow theaters to serve beer and wine.
Sen. Jeannie Darneille, D-Tacoma, said on the Senate floor that her opposition to the theater liquor bill and similar proposals has caused some to ask if she is a “teetotaler.”
“I proudly say I do drink,” Darneille said. “I’m not a teetotaler. But I do drink in moderation and you don’t see me driving afterwards.”
Sen. Jim Hargrove, D-Hoquiam, was the next to chime in, speaking against the bill.
