Noticed two what look to be mugs sitting just to the left of the fish tank in the interior shot postcard. Does anyone have one of these mugs they could post a photo of? Here's a not very good closeup.




Judging by the color of the left one, that could be that Otagiri blonde-wood-Moai-with-eyes as seen in the upper row, middle, here:



I don't recall ever seeing one with a Tiki Bob logo on it, though.

maybe im squinting a tad too much, but they look a lot like the skipper kent's otagiri moai mugs in the two tantalizing colors of brown and "gray" (aka; yellow puke).

Egad! What does "Honey Honey" sell? This makes me wish that someone would have recorded all the Bob paint jobs over the years from the same angle, to post them next to each other . This must be number 4 or 5.

I was telling Jon Paul that somebody in Nor. Cal. should go by there at 3 am in the middle of the night and paint him back to brown and white.
And then leave a old pic of Tiki Bob's and say just leave him this color please.

I like the idea, just so long it is not done messy.

This was so enjoyable to read from start to finish. I hope these photos are left here forever. I am working on the Sacramento Crawl ceramic for 2011 and since Tiki Bob is a part of our history he will be featured next year. Wendy



Updates will be on that thread just like last years Zombie/Coral Reef mug were.

Aside from the photos posted in this thread, there are very little else to be found. Does anyone know where I could find good vintage photos of the exterior of Tiki Bob's from back in the day?

Here are some more pics of that menu Duane. Saw the auction too -- awesome menu!







Here is a pic of a paper drink coaster:

That's a glorious menu! Nice coaster find too!

The lettering of "Chow" on the menu makes me think the mysterious San Francisco "Chow 'n Grog" sign that Trad'r Bill found in 2009, might actually be from Bob's:

Sabu - good eye, I was thinking the same thing... the lines inside the letters match my sign very closely. I think the sign was probably based on the menu lettering, or vice versa.

I looked through dozens of bamboo lettering fonts on Archiva Tropica and didn't see any that looked like the menu/sign:
http://www.arkivatropika.com/cgi-bin/tags.cgi?tags=%22bamboo%20lettering%22

Here's a side-by-side shot:


It seems very likely that the sign once hung at one of the Tiki Bob's locations. Any other explanation I can think of seems too far-fetched.
