4 THINGS I’M 72.8% SURE YOU DON’T KNOW ABOUT MINI-BARS


1-The first hotel to use mini-bars was the Hong Kong Hilton. 


2- Kimpton's Hotel Helix (in Washington D.C.) stocks their mini-bars with Pez dispensers. 

3- The mini-bar was first introduced in the 1960s by a German company known as Siegas (not to be confused with Sega).

4- The latest craze in the mini-bar arena is to offer non-food and beverage items like socks, toiletries, and condoms.

  17. Please don't tell me they put those rubbers in the fridge. Wouldn't that be the equivalent of taking a cold shower???

  18. The only thing I know about mini-bars is that it's cheaper to order liquor from room service and if you so much as pick up a bottle to look at it, you get charged for it. They have sensors in the fridge.
    If I had a comment of the day, or maybe the decade, it would go to Marlene!
