Happy Harvey Wallbanger Day - November 8th
Submitted By Jenn Lowry on Monday, November 2, 2020
November 8th celebrates the Harvey Wallbanger, an alcoholic drink made with vodka, Galliano liqueur, and orange juice, that was quite popular in the 1970's .

 Legend has it that the drink was invented by mixologist Donato "Duke" Antone at his establishment—the Blackwatch Bar—on Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood, in 1952.

Apparently he named it after a Manhattan Beach surfer named Harvey, or Tom Harvey, who frequented his bar. The story goes that Harvey ordered several of the drinks, enough to make him bang into the wall upon his exit. This story seems a little far fetched though, as evidence has shown that Antone was in Connecticut during the time the drink was supposedly invented.

Another fun-fact for Sunday Night Hockey!
