Minibars now offer lovers’ kits

Hold up! Before you read on, please read this...

This post was published more than 13 years ago

I keep old posts on the site because I often enjoy reading old content on other people's sites. Not everything that is old is bad. It can be interesting to see how views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have mellowed and matured.

But given the age of this post, please bear in mind:

  • My views might very well have changed in the 13 years since I wrote this post. I have written some very silly things over the years, many of which I find pretty embarrassing today.
  • This post might use language in ways which I would now consider highly inappropriate or offensive.
  • Factual information might be outdated.
  • Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.

Okay. Consider yourself duly warned. Read on...

Minibars now offer lovers’ kits (IHT)

It was the logical progression from selling drinks in a client’s room. I’m only surprised that it’s taken this long.

It’s also clearly the new way to rate the quality of a hotel: Does it offer a “Petite Love Box” (like the Montalambert in Paris) or a “Shag Bag” (like the Sagamore in Miami Beach)? Can’t you just see your grandma saying, “You’re not staying at a Shag Bag hotel?!?”

I tell you, It’s the new star rating.
