Default Cheap glasses

For those of you that collect 'junk' (like me), I'm not sure if "ROSS" is everywhere, I know they have stores in multiple states but also experienced people we know who have visited and do have their stores at home, often grab things while visiting here - so maybe selection, particularly in accessories, is different (?)

Anyway just a basic alert - currently ROSS (at least here) had these Captain Morgan logo-ed glasses, 4 for $6.99. They are a fairly heavy grade which I like. There were 3 varieties (of Captain Morgan) at the store, I only got the ones shown below. They also had Captains logo in the tall-boys but I passed on those as well. In addition, in the same "rocks" style, they had Crown Royal glasses - which I got (and sets of shot glasses - I didn't get).

While I wish they had my personal favored brands, as I doubt any of these will be filled with their respective namesakes, (and I will be on the lookout for other brand logos if they surface), I still thought they were a steal at $7. As a personal side, I tend to like heavier glass, and these are nicely weighted.

These are not flimsy. They're the kind you could hit someone in the head with and pick up or still be holding a good piece to hit them some more with.

I think I know what you are talking about and I absolutely abhor those that are thin enough to shatter by attempting to pick them up or by dropping a cube or two of ice in them!!

Tiare - I like that glass, did you have to buy it there or is it available online? I'll be on Maui later this year and could stop by Mamas. If that was your Mai Tai, how was it?

I don't want to lie as I'm not in front of the items right now, but I'm pretty sure these are standard 8 oz. rocks glasses.

They appear to be same caliber as the typical beer logo-ed pint glasses (except shorter) that you see common in pubs & restaurants - which from my experience tend to be, heavy use, durable.

The Mai Tai on the pic is from Mamas.
When i want a large Mai Tai or other large tiki drink i use these glasses, otherwise i make my small Mai Tais in a old fashioned glass. But these glasses are really nice and very heavy. You can find the glass with the double sided tiki all over eEBay but the one from Mamas are harder to find but not impossible. I got both from EBay from 2 different sellers so the chance is not too bad.
But if you are going there..

Here is a link to a pic of the one that is not from Mamas:
