Such is the life of the contractor, never quite sure what they did but at the same time you can't take full credit for work until it releases.

Such an example are the mugs created for the Enchanted Tiki Room's 50th anniversary which supposedly were created for the Polynesian Resort's 40th celebration that never occurred.
I never knew that. Maybe they'll break it out for the grand re-opening!

The new Uh Oa bowl looks like it was designed by someone who has never seen a tiki and knows nothing about the Enchanted Tiki Room, Tiki Culture or Polynesian art.
I was initially excited to see a new bowl from across a crowded Trader Sam's room, but when the bartender brought one over to us to inspect my excitement quickly dissipated into disappointment.
Oh well... I don't really have the space for another bowl anyway...

Are there pictures of that unreleased Mai Tai mug for Trader Sam's? First I've heard of it.

This seemed like the best thread to bump. New mugs from Trader Sam's have hit. Pics from the Facebook group of the new HippopotoMai-Tai mug (now ceramic instead of glass), Krakatoa mug(new glaze), and Uh-oh bowl (new glaze).
There's also news out of Tiki Oasis this weekend that for the holidays there will be a $50 Jingle Cruise mug with a mother and baby elephant from the Jungle Cruise. With that description and price point I'm thinking it will be a bowl with an elephant wading pool theme with the Christmas decorations.
