It is just a generic tiki mug with a label. You will see them all over Catalina Island as well, but they are not for any specific place. You will have to head down to SD to get these cool mugs

Here's a (new?) mug from the High Dive. My buddy Kahekili just picked one up there last month.

That High Dive is a NICE mug, and it's huge. Got one when I was there a year or so ago. Wang's is out of the Fu Manchus. I talked them into selling me one of their restaurant serving mugs. They gave me the one with the fewest chips. Felt bad as I was in from Portland and had come looking for one especial. Nice folks, great food! They said at the time they were thinking about commissioning a new one... I believe ballast point also has a new one?

Wangs is now out of business... Too bad.

Ballast Point got bought out and may not be making liquor anymore... Likely no new BP mugs in the future.

Martin Cate is helping Craft & Commerce open a tiki bar, I'll keep you posted if they come out with a mug.

Times are changing.

Was just at High Dive....they no longer have any mugs at all....didn't sound like anything was in the works either.

Ballast point home brew center still had a few of the barrel mug....I got the last one with the red devil which I guess was the limited variant.

This is exactly why you have to take advantage and enjoy these places when you can. First to support them so they hopefully stay in business, but also in case they don't make it...

Kindred in South Park is now having a tiki night every Thursday called Permanent Vacation. They came out with a new Tikifarm mug for the event and they still have some on hand.



Not so much tiki, but it is a 4 eyed wolf and a skull! It also has the bar name and SD, CA on the back. I will get more pics up when I have time.

Kindred is a new metal themed bar with a vegan food menu. They always play metal except for Thursdays.

Luna, I'm curious what kind of cocktail comes in a four-eyed wolf and skull mug at a vegan Metal joint? Looks like there's some kind of fire involved, too (always a plus!)
Cheers!

"metal themed bar with a vegan food menu"

That seems like an oxymoron

Finky, they do not have a particular drink that it is for. You can buy the mug for $20 or get it with a drink for $25. They had a dozen or so drinks that you could choose from, the one I was drinking was the Ancient Astronaut. They kind of randomly put fire in drinks for the first couple hours and then stopped. This was their first tiki night so all of these things might change in the future.

Its a great mug! I believe it was designed by the artist " The Piz" who has recently passed away. The restaurant is pretty fun for something different. Believe me , any drink that is not a nasty craft beer is a welcome addition to South Park.
