I have these 3 mugs currently listed on ebay.
I've never really seen them anywhere else.
I think Midnite posted a pic of the hula mug quite a while back.
Any one have any info to pass along?

Any help is appreciated.

They're from Trader Dick's at the Nugget Casino in Vegas, aren't they?

On a previous Ebay auction, a sellar claimed they were a give-away with a brand of Australian Rum. I've seen a fourth type. I lived and thrifted in the shadow of Trader Dicks, I don't think these mugs are from there.
Mahalo,

If EdgeofTexas got's his eye on 'em, have a shell bid up the price so EOT comes in at the end with the winning bid!

Nice... NOT...
Anyway, I noticed that he bids on lots of stuff and doesn't always go back. Probably to throw people off his tracks. I would have created a few different ebay names by this point if I were him.

Thanks for the thoughts.
I always assumed the were possibly early gift shop items from Trader Dick's.
The Australian rum theory is interesting...I got an email from a guy in Australia asking if I would ship there, so who knows?
They mystery continues...
