Is 'Pub' a brand or do you mean different mugs from different pubs?

I believe they want to know how many different mugs was used by the now defunct bar named "Pub Tiki" in Philadelphia.

Just so everyone can scoff, the former location of Pub Tiki is now a Cosi and a chi=chi clothing store for rich old women.

I'm not aware of how many different mugs Pub Tiki used but below is a pic of one of their mugs in my collection that remains one of my all-time favorites...

What does the 1 and 1/2 (?) refer to? Hopefully not the amount of free parking mentioned on the matchbook.

Sadly, I think the 1 1/2 does refer to the free parking situation - I remember hearing other theories of what it could mean but that seems the most obvious...

At The Pub restaurant in Pennsauken, N.J.---a surviving non-tiki-themed relative of Pub Tiki---there's a "1 1/2" in the logo design on their current drink glasses (clear glass one-pint glasses). The restaurant has its own big parking lot with no time limit, so I'm pretty sure the 1 1/2 refers to the generous liquor content of their mixed drinks. (Though I guess the meaning could have changed over time or space [crowded Center City Philly vs. more roomy Pennsauken].)

I have heard fromo old Philadelphians that it was 1 1/2 times the liquor. Well, at least one, anyway.

look at the photo of johntiki's mug. he has a matchbook that says "1 1/2 hours free parking." the same matchbook is in tikiquest pg 130.

There's no mention of the 1 and 1/2 on their website, but that's not too surprising I guess.

May not be a mug...but check this out. Up on Ebay now is the Pub Tiki Menu! I've never seen one before so I quickly added the pics to my Shutterfly account - Tiki Wants folder...I have the feeling the price is gonna skyrocket!





I'll know you'll enjoy adding this one to your collection Kohalacharms!

It is interesting to note that the artwork around the upper edge seems to be the same than on the "Hawaiian" menu on page 157 of the BOT.

Just added this to the collection - Nice, very unpolitically-correct 1-page ad from the mid-1950s for Pub Tiki by comic artist Jack Davis. You may recognize his artwork from EC Comics, Mad Magazine, and many record album covers.

Again, we have the 1 1/2 hours free parking prominently advertised.
