This mug is now available at Wang's in North Park (San Diego). I'm told it was made by Tiki Farm, although I don't know who the artist was.



Looks cool in a riff off the old Fu Manchu style mug.

500 were made for San Diego and 500 for Palm Springs. After they are all sold, a new design will be made. I'll post pics on my ooga mooga page soon...

I saw that mug on FB yesterday and am quite enamored of it. I can ONLY hope there are some left when I head down to Tiki Oasis. Definitely going to head to Wang's to eat, drink and snag one of those beauties!!! Thanks for posting Arriano.

We went two weeks ago for dinner. There's nothing on the menu about the mugs, and the waiter didn't mention them. But since we knew about them we asked for and got two. Pretty cool. We had the Tiki Style cocktail in both.

I was tending bar at Wangs in Palm Springs back in 2008 when I was setting up Tiki Caliente 1.
Holden and Joel from Wangs were in talks back then about the mug. Glad it finally came to be.

It looks great

Joel said their original design kept blowing up in the kiln, so they had to start over again from scratch...

Snagged the last two (according to the barkeep) during this evenings happy hour.Another bartender told me that another shipment was due any day. This was at the Palm Springs location. Food was good, drinks were simple (as opposed to the complex flavors/scents in a well crafted Mai Tai) but strong,and the tipsy factor is zero.
Cheers

I was down in San Diego last weekend with my boys for a beach volleyball tournament in Ocean Beach and managed to sneak off with Mrs. Cajun for a stop at Wang's for Good Fortune Hour.




I am happy to report that they still have the new mugs.



The happy our food was good and the Tiki Style drink that comes with the mug was surprisingly good.

$4 for the mug with the Tiki Style drink.

$8 with anything else.
