For what it's worth, here's the blurb from the back of the chrome postcard shown elsewhere in this thread.

A few news article ads from Tiki Bob's featuring the mixologists Sneaky Tiki in the Tiki Bob's peanut mug, which, interestingly enough, were made with Suntory Whiskey.







The mug from my collection.



Wonder if it was the inspiration for the Sneaky Tiki at Harvey's in Tahoe?



Or closer to home, Joe's Sneaky Tiki in San Leandro?

It is very probable that the "Sneaky Tiki" concept originated at Tiki Bob's, indeed. I don't have a date for this pic, but I guesstimate it to be mid- to late 50s:

Here's a scan of an ad from a mid-1960s magazine.
