Tales of the Cocktail
's official opening event was marked by a flash mob-style promotion from Lucas Bols B.V. the spirits company that distributes Galliano L'Autentico
, the Italian liqueur that turns a screwdriver into a Harvey Wallbanger. The cocktail was invented in California in the 1950s and popularized in the 1970s.
In a follow-up event that's open to the public, there's a Harvey Wallbanger bar crawl Monday, Aug. 25, in the Warehouse District. People wearing ’70s outfits get free Harvey Wallbangers. Local bartenders will present their versions of the drink. The crawl starts at The District
at 5:30 p.m. and moves roughly every hour to the next stop — Lucy's Retired Surfers Bar & Restaurant
, Ernst Cafe
and Apres Lounge
