First Beer and Burger Joint, Now This?

The beer and burger craze on South Beach is getting absurd. Can't we go back to Cubanos and cortadito, please?

You know it's time to give up when Burger King gets in on the deal. The company's new Whopper Bar will debut in mid-February in the heart of South Beach. Now you can get cheap, mass-produced beer with your cheap, mass-produced burgers.

A burger and a beer -- selections from Miller Coors and Budweiser available in aluminum bottles -- will run $7.99. Cheaper than 8 Oz. or Beer and Burger Joint, yes, but hardly in the same ball park.

What's next? McSchlitz's?
