    From Smuggler's Cove Instagram:

    "First envisioned back in 2011 as a painting by MP, we began discussions to bring it to life for Smuggler’s Cove many years ago and we're so happy with the results! A true celebration of San Francisco’s greatest tiki icons, the Suffering Bob mug marries Trader Vic’s Suffering Bastard (aka Mai Tai Joe) with Bob Bryant and Alec Yuill-Thornton’s Tiki Bob. Sculpted and produced in California by MP, Suffering Bob stands (squats?) a mighty 9.5 inches high and is finished in a color matched body with a white antiqued crackle glaze on the face. Smuggler’s Cove SC logo and San Francisco on the back complete this tribute in a signed and numbered limited edition of 100 for $200 ea. ON SALE TUESDAY, MAY 26th at 10AM PDT ONLINE ONLY at the SC website store."
