The Beachcomber menu does not display any mugs
they are just loose illustrations of cocktails

And that "Pacific Northwest Indian" ceramic figure was not used in any Tiki Bars
read the rest of the thread before the old "ATP" makes an appearance.

Now go to bed......

I cropped them so it was easier to see what I was talking about. The menu is from The Beachcomber in Winnipeg.
Looks to me like the mug they are trying to depict.

Now, does that add tiki to it or reinforce the Pacific Northwest-ness?

Either way, I've avoided this one like the plague which is why I was surprise to see it on a menu.

You're right, the graphic in the menu depicts the mug in question. It's still not tiki.

It is interesting though that of all the mugs they could have used, they chose that one. So maybe it is trying to reinforce the "Pacific Northwest-ness" of the restaurant's location. And maybe they actually used the mug at the restaurant?

It would be interesting if they did use that mug at the restaurant. It could be an example of creating a connection with the locals, like the recent Trader Vic's LA Clippers mug. It's a tiki mug from Trader Vic's, but with LA Clippers on it. There was a recent thread on that where the design was "borrowed".

If that's an illustration of a cocktail then the illustrator was hallucinating.

I agree that it was likely they used the mug as a cross-over between Tiki and Totem due to their location in Winnipeg. Excellent detective work! It's still not a tiki in the traditional sense, but the inclusion on the Beachcomber menu is an interesting twist.
