Have a cold one your way

MIAMI, FL -- Burger King likes to refer to itself these days as BK. Now, the B can stand for beer with your burger.

If you're here in Miami, that is. That's where the fast-food chain has opened its first "burger bar" where it is selling beer to drinking-age patrons.

The Whopper Bar South Beach is offering Whopper sandwich with Anheuser-Busch and MillerCoors brews. With fries, the combo costs $7.99. A beer alone, served in special aluminum cans made for BK, costs $4.25.

This restaurant is the company's pilot project. If successful, it plans to introduce the concept in other tourist markets such as Las Vegas, New York and Los Angeles, according to Chuck Fallon, president of Burger King North America.
