I just searched on the internet and got nothing. I just searched TC and got nothing...

Has anyone seen a Trader Vic's streetcar (or trolley mug) before? I found one today but have never seen mention of it before.

So what I want to know is: What was this used for? Was there a drink at TV's in San Francisco called the Streetcar? Is it not a drink vessel?

I'll post a photo later if anyone wants to see it.

I vaguely remember seeing one on Ebay not too long ago... I don't have a clue what may have been served in it but I remember it looked pretty cool... post a pic Slacks I'd be curious to find out more info. about it as well!

Sorry, I can't add anything.

It is a nice souvenir piece from the old SF Vic's, which is always nice to find.

I just came by to hijack your thread because I picked up a hot buttered rum barrel today for .99 cents.
It is bigger than others I have seen. It's like a party size at about 8 inches tall & 6 inch diameter.
It's a nice sized piece, but I have no idea how old it is.
Anyone?
