One of the best features of this exotic themed bar are the Trader Sam’s Grog Grotto tiki mugs. True to the authentic tiki bar experience, there are a variety of souvenir tiki mugs that are quite the hot ticket items. I am a fan of the tiki culture, though not an expert by any stretch of the imagination. However, I love both Trader Sam’s locations and have acquired a collection that I would like to share with you along with as much information as I can about these unique keepsakes.
I felt pretty ashamed that as a Native Floridian I heard never heard of The Mai Kai until Twitter. All this time I’ve had an incredible Polynesian, tiki restaurant and bar just a few hours away. The Mai Kai made for the highlight of a weekend getaway, and I'm already dying to go back.
