Picked up a little menu mailer from Dug's.

The front has the sailing ship that was represented one of his decanters.



The back has the tropical drink list.


And it opens up to the menu.

Cool find, DC, I love that whole Dug's story: It is purest Americana!

...Themed liquor decanters are so much a symbol of the times of Tiki and its generation, there is a mind-boggling array of them out there...



The figural liquor decanter collector scene even put out this self-referential bottle:









Some restaurants like the Formosa Cafe in Hollywood displayed some great figural bottle collections.

Next: MINI liquor bottle collecting. Or how about: Figural bottle OPENER collecting ?

Always with the bow tie. You collect stuff and they assume you wear a bow tie...

There is actually a Captain Dug's Brothel Decanter price guide book out there!



Another photo of Dug at his bar with the first sailing ship decanter.



Here is Dug's story from the price guide.





The inside of the guide also has photos of the brothels that the decanters were based on.



Love that Captain Dug!.
