Democrats Ask Drug Policy Office to Do More to Combat Opioid Epidemic
Twenty Democratic senators are asking the Office of National Drug Control Policy to do more to combat the opioid epidemic, according to the Associated Press.
The Whopper Bar in Miami’s South Beach is exactly what it sounds like — a place where you can get a beer along with your Burger King sandwich. The new fast-food concept opened in February — it’s the first BK to sell alcohol in the U.S., though a couple of similar outlets are operating overseas.
USA Today reported that the Whopper Bar serves Anheuser-Busch and MillerCoors beverages in aluminum bottles for $4.25 each, or $7.99 with a Whopper combo. The move is seen — surprise, surprise — as an attempt to attract younger customers. “The Burger King customer is aging,” said Linda Lipsky, a restaurant consultant, “they’re just trying to grow up with the customer.”
