North Carolina restaurant serves tarantula burger part of 'exotic meat month'

Bull City Burger and Brewery in Durham is in the midst of its sixth-annual Exotic Meat Month promotion, and one of the menu items: Tarantula Burger.

A hamburger intentionally topped with a tarantula is attracting customers to a restaurant in Durham, North Carolina.

Severe Weather Threat Continues This Evening
A cold front could produce a few showers and more clouds Thursday, but moisture return ahead of this system looks questionable. The strongest storms finally exit our eastern counties during the pre-dawn hours of Sunday morning.

But the challenge requires more than "the most daring of taste buds". "Try one for yourself!"

To participate in the so-called "2018 Tarantula Challenge", curious diners can sign up at Bull City Burger for a raffle ticket, which puts them in the running to win the signature sandwich. One lucky (?) victor per drawing gets to sink his or her teeth into the giant furry legs.

Spring storm brings blizzard, high wind warnings to eastern Colorado
At least 11 inches of snow had fallen in Valentine, and areas near Chadron and Sidney received almost 10 inches. Total snow accumulations of 5 to 10 inches are expected, with winds gusting as high as 65 miles per hour .

A restaurant in North Carolina is asking people if they're fearless enough to take the tarantula challenge. The victor has two days to claim their burger.

The exotic meats range from some that aren't that out-of-the-ordinary, like turkey and venison, to some you'd have trouble finding in other restaurants, like camel and python.

National awards are out, Sridevi wins best actress for 'Mom'
Journalist Girdhar Jha won the best critic award, while Sunil Mishra received a special mention for best writing on cinema. Veteran Hindi film actor Shri Vinod Khanna was awarded the Dadasaheb Phalke Award for his contribution to Indian Cinema.

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!"
