Pimp My Minibar

MIAMI - If you thought pillow menus in hotels were over the top, how about customized minibars?

The Catalina Hotel and Beach Club in Miami's South Beach is offering themed minibar packages for $50 each and up. Forget pretzels and tiny bottles of vodka; the hotel is calling this deal "Pimp Your Fridge."

You'll actually get that bottle of vodka in the Rock Star minibar, which also comes with Krispy Kremes and Red Bull. For the morning after, you get Visine, Alka-Seltzer, a chilled eye mask and Gatorade. You get a pack of cigarettes with that, too, but there's no smoking in the hotel, so you'll have to step outside to light up.

The Get It On minibar package includes edible body paint, champagne, whipped cream, maraschino cherries, strawberries, scented candles and oil, and a Barry White CD.

The Sweet Tooth minibar has chocolate goodies, and the Nostalgia minibar will take you back to your youth with fruit roll-ups, candy cigarettes and a cheeselike substance in a spray can.

The Munchie Mania minibar runs sweet to salty, with Cheetos and cheesecake, and the Schizo minibar is good and bad -- something fruity, something fattening, Tylenol and Red Bull.
