The Brutal Hammer of Truth continues to crank out a study supply of BYCU stories:

Interesting piece: the demise of the hotel mini-bar. Basically, it appears to come down to this: Hotels charge such outrageous prices for the drinks, no one buys them, so now hotels are getting rid of the mini-bars because they can't make money off them.

I found this passage interesting: "In 2014 one hotel in Las Vegas began threatening guests with $US50 fines if they stored any of their own booze in the room fridge." I'm not sure about 2014, but I'm pretty sure the Wynn had a sign in my room last November, warning me not to put anything in the fridge or else I'd face a stiff surcharge.
