Family friends recently returned from a trip to the Wynn Las Vegas, but the first story they had to tell wasnâ€™t about luxurious accommodations, gambling, restaurants, or shows. It was about the snacks on top of their minibar.
The motion-detector minibar wasnâ€™t new to me. Those are bad enough: You move any item in the minibar, and if you donâ€™t put it back within 60 seconds, youâ€™ve bought it. So much for making room to store your own food or beverages in there.
But what the friends told us was about the outside of the minibar. Snacks were placed on a tray. Not inside anything, but out in the open. Thereâ€™s a warning that the food is on an electronic scale, and moving the item means you bought it.
