Mrs. Fury found this and gave it to me for my Birthday.....

Don't get too excited .... it's not THE one, just like the Menehune Magic from the Sheraton Kauai, but a bit more rare.










Happy hunting!

He kinda looks like Fal Albert's and Jerry Garcia's love child.

Thanks for posting this!

Vintage mugs from Sam's are so rare they are almost myth.

The Menehune Magic looks more like a leprechaun with a pot of gold. I've always wondered what the story behind the design of those mugs were.

Does this one count? I found 2 of these in the wild so far:



Any truth to the rumor I just made up that Sam's is planning a relaunch/reopening? I think all they have to do to reopen is pry off the new sign.
Buzzy Out!

Ron I find it amazing that you are finding Sam's tiki mugs in Ventura County .
You think there would be more of these in the wild closer to the actual bar location.
