Restaurant serves up $30 tarantula burgers

Bull City Burger in Durham, NC is known for their tasty burgers.

The promotion is part of their sixth annual Exotic Meat Month, which celebrates the restaurant and brewery's anniversary by serving burgers made from meats eaten around the globe each March and April.

Normally finding a spider in your food would be a reason to send your food back to the kitchen, but at one North Carolina restaurant, the creepy-crawly is actually supposed to be there. Well, it's a like a regular burger, but with a cooked tarantula on top.

In order to try the unique burger, guests must pay $30 to enter a "tarantula raffle", and are rewarded for their bravery with a T-shirt to commemorate the challenge. "Best way to answer that question?" One lucky (?) victor per drawing gets to sink his or her teeth into the giant furry legs. Once the ticket is drawn, customers have two days to respond.

Three funerals for victims of Saskatchewan hockey bus crash victims today

If you're not quite ready to embrace this level of arachno-cuisine, Bull City has other critters available: "Don't worry, we've got chocolate covered bugs too!"

Also on the menu are alligator, iguana, python and turtle burgers.

Heavy rain and possible severe weather expected Sunday
I may update this blog post later today and/or early Sunday but will not be posting during the day or evening Sunday . By Friday another storm should be bringing wind, colder air, and a chance for rain and snow to the region.
