No luck finding pictures of the interior, but here is a video of the bomb squad blowing a huge hole in the side of the building.

Not footage you would commonly associate with a tiki location.

Another menu with images of the ubiquitous signature mugs.



Harveys switched fonts on the mugs from the standard cursive design to a less attractive block design as seen on these bucket mugs I have.



And this Sneaky Tiki mug posted by PTD.



Progress I guess?

I also saw a brochure on ebay that had a rare photo of the interior.



Kind of strange that with all of the signature mugs sold at this place they didn't use them for the photo shoot. Some interesting carvings on the table and in the background. You can also see the Hawaiian band playing.

Never seen these before - the bucket mugs with a matching lid for condiments?

I just went to Lake Tahoe for the first time. I was hoping to find some tiki, but I didn't expect much. I walked around Harvey's to see if there were any older bartenders who might still remember how to make a Sneaky Tiki, but no luck. Mostly just younger bartenders. None of them had heard of the Sneaky Tiki. In their sports bar I did find this guy hanging out.



And as I looked deeper I found myself at Cabo Wabo, Sammy Hagar's bar. I did find a super cool Crazy Al tiki mug there, the Sam Ku.



But that is all I have to report. No one seems to remember any of the history behind this place. It is too bad, it is a really good story.

I hope this is proper information for this thread.
