A NC Burger Worthy of FRIDAY THE 13TH

DURHAM – According to Western superstition, 13 is an unlucky number. Friday is supposed to be an unlucky day. Put them together and you have a scary combination of potentially bad luck and a lot of office banter about the date.

So, fitting for this Friday the 13th is another scary combination being offered right here in North Carolina: A tarantula burger. Seriously.

“Bull City Burger and Brewery, a Durham-based restaurant, is offering the menu item as part of its sixth annual Exotic Meat Month promotion by serving burgers made from meats eaten around the globe each March and April, according to WRAL.

The burgers offered on the menu during the promotion include alligator, iguana, python, bison, turtle and bugs but this is only the second year that Bull City Burger has offered the tarantula challenge.

Brave customers who clean their plates get a tarantula challenge T-shirt — and bragging rights.

According to the restaurant, the tarantula burger is $30 and is a 100 percent North Carolina pasture-raised beef burger with Gruyere cheese, oven-roasted tarantula and spicy chili sauce served on a fresh-house baked bun with a side of dirty fries.”

Now they only have 18 creepy crawlers to be lightly salted and cooked to your preference, so they’re actually running a ‘Tarantula Raffle’ with one ticket drawn everyday until they run out.
