Most definitely the same, it's just that the glass one is a negative, which makes it confusing.
Here's the mug it is based on:




...and here the icon the mug was derived from, much altered, obviously to avoid copyright issues:




and last the humble stone statue that that famous logo was inspired by:

Thanks, everyone, for posting pix here! I grew up outside Dayton and remember my folks taking me to The Tropics a few time.

Tangentally related: Anyone know what happened to the moai that stood by the Kon-Tiki Theatre's sign?

Crushenstein, those are some nice glasses. Closest thing to a Tiki mug yet from this place.

Here are a few more items from the Tropics I have seen around on hte net.

A menu with the same Tiki that was on one of the feature matchbooks.





An ashtray that used the logo from the old sign in front.




And finally, another great matchbook with Georgie featured on the matches.

The girl



The cool sign


Georgie


The rooms

Well, ya know BigBro, it is a helluva gimmick. To this very day, 50 years later, when I am showing the collection to people, I always hand them the bas-relief boobie match covers. You didn't just drop them in your pocket, you shared them. Nice advertizing!

My mistake. I thought everyone had the ability to delete their own posts. But I guess that's one of my Moderator secret abilities. Comes in handy when you want to delete your own 1:00am drunken babblings.

But I could do this:

Zeta did the best he could to delete this post:
http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?topic=29368&forum=2&vpost=506227

So I could do him the favor as a moderator and remove that troublesome post as he obviously intended. That would bring his total down to 999 and he would have to return to make Grand Exit #2.

The other option is to set a 24-hour watch on the blank post above, for that is where he will obviously return. His call for help will come as an edit to that post. When we see his text, we can pull him through to the real world just like in a Twilight Zone episode. Until then, he's stuck in the 5th Dimension.




This is a way to keep posting whithout posting...
For example:

This crazy doddle I did at 23 or so...

Aloha from the 5th Dimension!

Yeah, that would have been a dream-come-true. Is that article from 1988 then? Georgie seems to be cradling two Witco wall Tikis --and he's holding both upside down.
