    DURHAM, N.C. — Sometimes you can’t say “nope” enough.

    But for whatever reason, one Durham restaurant is saying yes to a “tarantula burger.”

    Bull City Burger and Brewery is serving up the dish in celebration of Exotic Meat Month.
    DURHAM, N.C. — Sometimes you can’t say “nope” enough.

    The only way to get the eight-legged beef sandwich is by winning the Tarantula Challenge.

    The burger costs $30 and includes a pasture-raised North Carolina beef burger, gruyere cheese, an oven-roasted tarantula and spicy chili sauce.

    Participants can sign up for the limited challenge in the restaurant. Then, they have to watch Facebook, Twitter and the Bull City Burger and Brewery website to see if their ticket is drawn.

    If the selected participant eats the entire burger, they’ll get a free T-shirt.

    They have specials like kangaroo, alligator and so on.... i'm drawing the line at spiders.

    Being the nice guy that I am... if any of y'all want to come try it, you're welcome to crash at my place. Just don't ask for a to-go box when you don't finish that shit

    I just want to do it because it's a challenge. I dont want to do it, because it sounds gross and I will probably gag.

    Maybe it would help if they would have squished it. Leaving it whole like that is off putting :puke:

    Not a big deal at all. After living in Asia for seven years you see and eat all kinds of goodies. Now..if the tarantula was still alive????

    Now I'm curious how they get the tarantulas (live or dead) and what the texture is like after they are cooked. Do the guts cook as well or do they liquify further and squirt everywhere the first bite you take? Can you tell yourself its just ketchup and keep going?
