Yeah, the green one is the only one they have with the ear rings. I have no idea what the blue tiki looks like, but I ordered it anyway. Jason told me it was similar to the green one. Nicky told me it was completely different, so who knows? It should be here sometime next week. I just ordered a green one which they told me would ship out today. I'm guessing all the other stuff is the same Tiki Farm stuff you can get off the Tiki Farm website, but with their logo on them or something. I could be wrong though.

Holden, any imput on this?

My wife and I dined there a while back -- the people are very nice, great service, food is good, but not amazing.

At the time, they were not selling the mug and most of the mugs in use were badly chipped. The green ring mug was the only one marked Tchoup Chop -- the rest were more common generic mugs (mix of Tiki farm and some common reproductions, if I recall.

Very few tikis in the restaurant, alas, aside from the mugs.

The "Blue Ones" are our Shell Head Tiki mug by Drew Brophy in cobalt blue. They order them because the kids (they do a non-alcoholic drink in this mug) like the fact that Shell Head is grabbin' his sss and apparently, that goes over well with kidz! Look out for SDSU (San Diego State University) mugs where one cheek reads "SD" and the other reads "SU"... "San Diego Crack State University!!".

I got mine today, nice mug. Mine was $12.87 shipped! I am shocked it survived the trip the way it was packed. I suspect the good mana the Emerils folks are throwing off helped.

Well there I was sitting at my PC when I hear the outside door open, then close, so I get up and look down the steps and there was a present left by the UPS man (gotta love BROWN) and I pick up the box after looking at it and thinking man what did I order that would need this big ol' box? Then I see the label that says Tchoup Choup. So I bring it inside and the box darn near opened itself, but when I opened it I found not tons of popcorn or any bubble wrap. Just a Emeril's bag and in the bag all by itself was my beautiful mug that I had ordered safe and sound.

Now I'm scared! Mine has to make it all the way to the West Coast!! I asked if they were going to wrap and pack well....I was told..."Of course!"

Also, did anyone else gasp at the shipping charge? Mine was 16 bucks! I think at that rate it should come priority overnight....Ack!

Ya know now that I look at my receipt I think they charged me the $12.78 for the mug but not for the shipping......shhhhhhhh lets not tell anyone. Of course it may show up later somewhere else on my statement.

So, I looked up the tracking # that came along with the billing on my credit card and found that the package is 10 pounds!!! This thing is either packed VERY well, or they sent me several mugs!! It won't arrive until the 27th ( Something about problems at the distribution hub ) This is VERY interesting!

MAN! If i wasn't strapped for cash at the moment I'd get me one. That looks awesome!!

BTW guess who paid 2 1/2 times more for the same mug on ebay?

I noticed he's a member of the board, too bad he doesn't come here any more, could have saved him some green.

just got mine yesterday. It arrived safe in sound in the same bag w/mug wrapped in foam. Also had just the receipt for the mug. Made it safe and sound and love the glaze it's thin enough to be light green, but where it has definition it's very dark green. Very cool. Very sea worthy, almost neptune-esqu. Shipping charges must be coming later.

I picked up a brown one last night at Tchoup Chop. The restaurant is so gorgeous.

I love my new mug.

AND they are still only $12.
