My two Grails are related. The first, I found on Ebay and tried to sell my Corvair to cover the bid, but, I knew it was futile and I know the guy who won and I can go visit it if I want. The first Mai Kai Mystery Bowl by Hoffman with the flower design on the side. I know one exists now!



The second is the cousin. The first Kahiki Mystery Bowl that is pictured on their first menu. It looks more like the Mai Kai bowl and is seen in some images. Skip says he saw a damaged one on Ebay a while back. I have yet to see it surface, but maybe it was unmarked and goes by all the time.



I'd trade every mug I own (except maybe the Mai Kai drum and decanter with original contents) for that Mai Kai bowl. I'd design my bar around that bowl.

Searching for the Hawaii Kai skull, the "Goddess of love" version. Mission accomplished. Now just on the look out for any politiki mugs.

mine would have to be the waimea brewing co. tiki mug by munktiki. i have nearly every style of mug and bowl that munktiki has ever done (not every color). this might be the only style i don't have.

A true Holy Grail for me would be -

Owning a real James B. Casey poly-pop carving from Pacific Ocean Park

Anyone out there have one for sale? PM me immediately!!

I now want more natural things like a bill from a saw fish.
Or those HUGE clam shells.
Mugs are cool I love em, but heck at this point they are EVERYWHERE in my home.
Plus more and more cool mugs just keep comming.

Not mine, its the son of Mr Hoffman, Eric.
Eric got this mystery bowl from a lady who found it at a garage sale for 25 cents!

So it was FREE!
