Tarantula Toppings on Your Burger

A hamburger intentionally topped with a tarantula is attracting customers to a restaurant in Durham, North Carolina. Bull City Burger and Brewery is currently celebrating “Exotic Meat Month” by featuring burgers made with everything from alligator to iguana, python, bison, turtle and insects. But it’s the tarantula challenge that has customers going buggy. For $30, customers get a 100 percent North Carolina pasture-raised beef burger topped with cheese, chili sauce and an oven-roasted tarantula. And if they finish their plate, they get a T-shirt to immortalize the eight-legged feat. However, the restaurant purchased only 18 tarantulas so anyone wanting to chow down on one of the arachnids has to win a “tarantula raffle” first. At least four people have completed the Spidey challenge……Ed
