Nope! Brewery serves up 'tarantula burger' for Exotic Meat Month

- This is not a joke.

A Durham, NC restaurant is serving up a pasture-raised beef burger topped with Gruyere cheese, spicy chili sauce and an oven-roasted tarantula.

Every April, Bull City Burger and Brewery hosts "Exotic Meat Month", celebrating exotic meats eaten around the country and the world.

A restaurant in Durham, North Carolina has made the month of April meaningful by enticing foodies to try unusual, meaty creations.

Other menu items include alligator tubesteak, guacamole topped with seasoned, edible bugs, rabbit meatball sub, reindeer meatballs and homemade python curry over white rice. If you answered yes then now's your chance, thanks to Bull City Burger Brewery's latest burger.

Customers who are lucky enough to be selected, and end up cleaning their plate, can get a tarantula challenge T-shirt. One victor is drawn daily and their ticket number is shared on social media; they then have 48 hours to contact the restaurant and schedule a time to devour their tarantula-topped prize.

But one particular burger is drawing a lot of attention - the tarantula burger.

Out & About Editor Kathy Hanrahan agreed to participate in the challenge.
