Pick Your Poison: Alright! I'm gonna make you a Harvey Wallbanger. These things remind me of being a kid in Alaska.

What Goes In It? Vodka, Galliano, and Orange Juice. And sometimes I use a little bit of blood orange, if they're in season.

Why's It Remind You of Alaska? I grew up in this little fishing village called Dutch Harbor. Every time we'd get our quarterly report cards in school, my mom would make us a drink if we did well. On the weekends, that is.

Dutch Harbor, eh? It was a 10 to 1 male-female ratio. Like they said 'The odds are good, but the goods are odd!

How'd You Get Your Foot In Tigertail's Door? I moved down here about two months ago and had a friend who was working here. She told (co-owner) Tim (Hayes) I needed a job.

Do You Miss Alaska? Oh yeah. I'm gonna move back eventually. I've lived in Seattle before and moved back. I move all over the place. But I love Seattle, though. I love how warm it is. I like how hot everyone is, too. Not everyone's dressed in their Carhartt's and flannel like up there. I burned my long johns as soon as I got here!

What Song Goes Best With A Harvey Wallbanger? Oh, I gotta ask (cook) Marta (Monti) this one. Marta? What song goes best with a Harvey Wallbanger?

Marta: The Milwaukee Brewer's "Roll Out the Barrell"

Trivia: The Harvey Wallbanger was originated in 1965 in California, but made even more famous by the 1982 Milwaukee Brewer's baseball team, who won the American League pennant under manager Harvey Kuenn...hence, the team was dubbed "Harvey's Wallbangers" Marta Monti also went to high school with children of the Violent Femmes. No, I did not bring up Jeffrey Dahmer.
