Picked this guy up today. It looks like the one from Tiki-Ti. I think the $.99 I spent on it was a pretty swingin' deal! Vegas has been pretty good to me with Tiki stuff so far.





It says Vermonde Orig on the bottom.



I've seen some of the Don The Beachcomber bust mugs with the same marking. Could this mug have been used at Don's? Here is a picture of the drink from a menu I have from the Las Vegas location from the late 60's. No cobra mug in the pic, but maybe early on they served them in cobra mugs...just speculation.

WOW!!! Yes, I have seen that mug at the Tiki Ti - or at least on their video loop for the Cobra Fang mug. The Vermonde mark for sure matches the Don the Beachcomber bust mug and the elusive Bamboo mug.



So yes, I have to agree with you that this is most likely the Don the Beachcomber Cobra Fang mug. And it makes sense that the Tiki Ti would have one since Ray Buhen used to work for Don the Beachcomber. Awesome find and congrats.

Thanks Tattoo! I knew I had seen it somewhere. It was really funny when I read your response to my better half. You should have seen the look on her face. My giddiness over finding the mug was plenty well justified.
