For my Savage Renewal entry I thought I'd share some pictures of my favorite Hawaiian souvenir bar glasses. I like to collect these because:

1. They're cheap. I can't remember spending more than 2 bucks for a glass at a thrift store -- most cost 49.

2. I can keep my vintage mugs safe on the shelf and use these to drink from. Besides being less of a disaster if one breaks, I prefer to drink from glass because I like to see the beautiful color of my drink.

Most common is the "Suck 'Em Up" glass with the revisionist Mai Tai recipe on the back (it has pineapple and orange juice). I have about half a dozen of these "suckers".

These Don Ho glasses are pretty common too.

Two styles of
Al Harrington (The South Pacific Man) glasses.

A Trader Vic's Waikiki glass. I believe this design was unique to the Hawaii location and that there are two others in the series.

A lovely little rocks glass with Hawaiian tourist icons in black and gold.

Another nifty scenic glass. I like the 50s illustration style.
