Distinguishing  Tonga Hut Big Mo Limited Edition
A nine-inch-tall light tan Moai mug with dark brown detailing and white interior. This mug was released at the Tonga Hut Tiki Wonderland party on December 11th, 2010. This is the Tonga Hut's first personalized Tiki mug in its long long history. It was sculpted by Kirby and manufactured by both Kirby and Grog. The original Big Mo is the Moai carving just within the front door of the Tonga Hut. The mug is a faithful replica. The back of the mug reads "Tonga Hut" in vertical letters and gives the opening date of the bar, "1958." The bottom is inscribed with "2010 Kirby & Grog." First run was limited to 25 mugs for the premiere and each was hand numbered in black marker on bottom. Signed and numbered card included. * I picked number nine because it is noticeably heavier than the other ones in this run. Looks just the same, though. An early photo of mine of this mug with Hawaiian backdrop was featured in the Spring 2011 feature article on Kirby's work in Tiki Magazine.
