It seems that Jennifer Lawrence, who plays Katniss in The Hunger Games, defines adulthood and fame as being able to indulge in items from the minibar. Lawrence tells Glamour:
"Just recently I started letting myself eat things from the minibar. When we were kids, we would never open the minibar. A $6 Snickers bar? But the other day I was in a hotel and I was staring at a Snickers bar, and I finally just ate it. Then it was like something in me snapped. I opened all these drinks. I thought: I can do it now. Now I'm all grown-up. I can eat things from the minibar.”
I personally don't think it's worth it to pay inflated prices for snacks and drinks. If I give into my cravings and take items from the minibar, I would go replace them with items from a nearby drugstore or supermarket. Little costs here and there can add up, and before you know it, the hotel "deal" you spent such a long time researching ends up costing a little more than it should. What about you — do you drink or eat items from the minibar?
