I'll be in San Diego for Tiki Oasis and I'd like to bring home some souvenir mugs. So far I can only find two places with mugs - Bali Hai & Wang's. Are there any others?

You might be out of town now, but the only other place I know that offers mugs is Bar Pink. But they don't have an official mug, it is Munktikis Pink Elephant mug you can order here...

Looks like they are out now, but they have more regularly.

I am pretty sure that is all. Not too many tiki bars right now.

Trader Morts has a large selection of Tikifarm mugs right now and Freaky Boutiki sells mugs, but they are not location specific.

Ballast Point Brewery released their 2nd (Tiki Farm produced) mug- if it's still available, you can get it at either their "Home Brew Mart" location (on Linda Vista Road) or at the Brewery in Scripps Ranch/ Poway- I'd call first. Also, "The High Dive" Bar was carrying the 2nd Ballast Point Tiki Mug there (on Morena Blvd). Hope this helps.

Oh yeah, I should have remembered. I think the High Dive is sold out but a couple weeks back they did still have them at the brewery. I have one of the first run Ballast Point mugs, which I like the look of a lot more. But the new one is cool too and the brewery is a cool visit.

These are the two Bali Hai mugs. Mr. Bali Hai on the right and Goof Punch on the left. Both are under $20 with a drink included. I think the later edition of the Goof Punch mugs are smaller than this one, but still cool. A must for any mug collection! Hopefully my wife will want to go to Bali Hai tonight!!!

These are the two Ballast Point mugs. They are a brewery/distillery and not a tiki bar, but they do make their own rum, so they have been selling these for a couple years. The one on the left is the original, which I love. Very intricate details on this mug. They are not selling them anymore, so ebay is your best bet. The one on the right is the current one that they are selling. As of a couple weeks ago they still had plenty. I am not sure the price?

This is the mug from Wang's. Derek Yaniger designed it and I am a big fan of his work. I don't recall what I paid but it was not much. They seemed to still have plenty.

And this is the Pink Elephant that they sell at Bar Pink on their Tiki Tuesday. It costs $30 with a drink and it is made by Munktiki. It does not have their name on it though, but Bar Pink used to be called the Pink Elephant, so it is very fitting. They host a good tiki night with surf bands usually and like 5 or 6 tiki drinks. The drinks are ok (depending on your bartender) and it is very cool of them to do a tiki night. Bar Pink is a very cool bar and a good venue to see bands. I saw Surfer Blood there a few years back.

Either the photo is washed out, or it's a lighter pink than the ones ordered from Munktiki.

The High Dive on Morena Blvd started carrying tiki mugs...

They have Tiki Farm's Aquati and it says The High Dive San Diego, CA on the back. They also have the Armada Geddon bowl and the Balast Point Fish Eating Tiki mug, neither of which are marked High DIve.

While at the Bali Hai recently my wife CeCe mentioned that the “The Goof” mug was different then the 2-3 goof mus that we have at home. Sure enough,She was right again. THe larger one is the latest.

Bar Pink has a new Tiki Tony mug. Only 50 produced. It has "Bar Pink" embossed on the back.

A good local bar reference.

Sadly, when I was in town this last weekend, the Goof was out of stock at Bali hai. I did get Tiki Tony's pink elephant mug (there are only a few left) at Bar Pink, and an art deco fu manchu at Wang's around the corner. I also picked up a variety of other wonderful pieces at the Freaky Botiki, Trader Morts and Ratt Pack Records. I didn't make it up to Ballast Point Brewery, but I wish I had. This brings my collection up to 75! Many thanks to MissClaireTiki for her help in my Tiki endeavors!

Here is the Swag...






The pinapple head was ordered from Frank's in Las Vegas and waiting for me when I got home.


I also got the new Frankenstien mug and the slot machine mug from Frank's
