Special Notes: This is a vintage mug from the restaurant on the top floor of Harvey’s Wagon Wheel Hotel and Casino, also known as Harvey’s Lake Tahoe. The Top of the Wheel featured a Polynesian lounge with decor by Eli Hedley, and had a logo “Sneaky Tiki.” Mugs from Harvey’s are still quite easy to come by. The lower floors of the casino were heavily damaged by a bombing in 1980, part of a failed extortion attempt. The Top of the Wheel closed sometime in the early-to-mid 1980s. Harvey’s Lake Tahoe has since rebuilt, but there is no Tiki bar there today.
