That's the first I've heard of them running out of mugs... in our experience, they
always seem to have plenty.

They had told a friend of ours probably 6 months to a year ago that they were "almost out"
of the sea urchin mugs and that when they ran out they'd get something different and retire
that design, but we've gone back and picked them up for friends at least three times since then,
so I don't know if they just had more than the bartender knew about, or if they did end up reordering
them.

I think Paul McGee the one behind ordering new mug designs and cool new drink vessels, and he
always seemed pretty jazzed when they'd get in new stuff, so perhaps the new management is ordering
lower quantities or changing up their buying habits. For awhile there, they were getting all kinds of
3 Dots branded Tiki Farm designs (including bigger ticket stuff like the clam shell and sea horse
bowls.)

I can say most everything they use comes from Tiki Farm (with the exception of a select handful of
Cheeky Tiki UK and Dynasty mugs), and all of their 3 Dots branded stock is from the Farm, so perhaps
it'd be worth throwing Holden a line on their FB page?

Thanks so much for the info! I'll definitely shoot "Holden" a message on their FB page. Better to be safe than sorry!

Mahalo!

My daughter was in there about 10 days ago & they told her they had 14 different mugs in stock on that particular day, though there was sadly no sea urchin. The person she spoke to gave her the impression that they won't be getting that one back

She got me the gold bamboo with the 3 Dots name on the rim and the green Big Toe 2013 design (has no 3 dots markings), both Tiki Farm.

She's supposed to head over for me again later this week, so I'll report what they have now, once I hear from her.

Thanks KKB! Oh no! No more Urchin?! That's my favorite one. Guess I'll have to bite the bullet and get that one from ebay... I'll definitely get what I can though. Thanks for the info everyone!

I know! I was really bummed, too. I've been dying to have one of those sea urchins in my collection!

So a review from my earlier post..

Excellent go there - my friends thought it was grate and they aren't into tiki so much. They still served in the Urchin mugs. all drinks were excellent and PUPU platter was grate too. Easy to find in the back alley. I used an app open table to reserve a table it was easy - place filled up quick from 5:30 to 7p. Met a lot of fun people - I'd do it again.

Mahalo to all those who helped.
I couldn't carry any mugs out I was going to a show and knew it wouldn't survive.

ATP is taking over for Grog as the new Spelling Police.

There's a new sheriff in town

I guess I'm lucky to have an urchin mug. I also have the golden bamboo. They make some cool mugs!

I wouldn't presume to replace Grog, I make enough mistakes of my own
but that one was particularly "grating"

The Grate was a reference to "Grate"ful Dead shows which was the main reason I was in town for anyway.

The played 3 final shows at Soldier Field July 3/4/5 2015.

Keep on truckin

Cheers SneakyJack, hope you had a great (grate) time in Chicago!

Back from my whirlwind trip through Milwaukee and the Chicagoland area. Happy to report that, as of last Saturday, Three Dots was back in stock of all of their mugs and bowls, so if you're looking for any of them to complete your collection, I suggest you act fast. They said they were already low on the Urchin and Paul McGee mugs and they had only just gotten them all in on Thursday prior. Sorry to any of you who asked me to pick you up a mug from here, as they were limiting me to one of each style mug. I'll be posting some fun pics in the near future for all 8 of the Tiki bars we went to on our trip. Stay tuned...


Aloha!
