I acquired two of the Tiki Bob mugs from New Orleans, one from the original Beach Comber and the second from the Bali Hai. The Bali Hai mug is several inches bigger than the Beach Comber mug and has a different style. Did the San Francisco Bob mugs also come in different sizes and styles as well?
A few Tiki Bob ads that were on ebay.
I also found these two photos on line showing the exterior, somehow not as romantic looking as the postcard and the rendering.
Finally, I found a video of the New Orleans Cocktail Chicks interviewing Jay Batt who is the grandson of the original owner of the Bali Hai. Some comical stories of underage Fog Cutter drinking in the Big Easy.
