I may have missed a thread somewhere, but is there a list of mugs that were given away with certain cocktails from particular restaurants/bars? I know some bars bought in huge quatities of a particular mug that could be kept if a certain drink was bought (which usually cost a couple of bucks more than the normal going rate). By getting crates of one mug, they kept the price down, and the customer would be less likely to walk away with a more expensive mug.

Anyway, is there such a list, or should we start one here?

I only have a list of establishments that have mugs that seem to fall into my pocket after drinking the contents out...

tikiwahine, don't you have a handy photo showing all the mugs from honolulu for the "tiki tumbler?"

the menu said something like, "you buy the drink, you get to keep the mug..."

Of course!
In the top row of this photo you see the green headhunter, then the brown tiki and the blue mermaid, all from the Honolulu. The tiki was the mug given free when you bought the drink.
