I've seen that mug on eBay several times. I recall reading that it was used at a short-lived seafood spin-off of Trader Vic's. At the moment I can't recall the name or where I read this, but if I can find it again I'll post it up.

Tiki-Kate, thank you s much for the info! I looked over ooga-mooga (briefly at work) and couldn't find it. I may have missed it during a phone call. But again, thank you very much! Now... anyone know of a drink recipe that it went with?

I believe it may be in Trader Vic's Book of Mexican Cooking. I don't own it, so I can't check. But I'm sure someone else out there has a copy...
