I came across this menu for the Mai Tai Resort Motel in Osage Beach, MO for sale on eBay a while back, which I haven't seen on any TC forums:

Aloha Mai Tai Club menu 1

Aloha Mai Tai Club menu 4

Interestingly, it's illustration for the "Tall Tiki" features a crypto mug...

Aloha Mai Tai Club menu 3

...that has so far only been associated with Judge's Beyond the Reef, in Brookfield, WI. For example, it is listed in this Crypto Mugs thread in a 2014 post from Tattoo:

Other versions are shown in the Judges' Beyond the Reef thread:


The somewhat mysterious mug has been found with markings other than Judge's, so it looks like the Mai Tai Resort could be another source. I am curious if anyone else can confirm the connection.
