    I could not. They go on about the grass fed beef, and special cheese, but nothing about the tarantula's diet.

    Bull City City Burger and Brewery is about 5 mins from the house. I'm going to avoid that area for that week. Can't do spiders, especially hairy tarantulas

    No worries, they're oven roasted.  They don't bite.

    I'm fairly adventurous with food, but no, I really don't think I could even take a bite out of that burger.

    I would try just about anything, but it would take a lot of money for me to take bite.

    Kinda funny, ate raw surf clam, scallops, tuna, squid, snapper and octopus for lunch.  Not interested in the arachnid.

    I like the crunch on my burger to be from fresh sweet onions, crisp pickels, and very well done bacon. I am fine without an arachnid.
    There may come a day when it shall be necessary to consume tarantulas for my diet, but, that time is not now, nor the foreseeable future.
    I am good.

    Honestly, the canned spiders have kind of an off taste to me and definitely don’t have the snap of fresh, they’re a bit mushy.

    Bull City Burger is one of the best local burgers around IMO. In April they do "exotic meat month" - ostrich, elk, alligator, snake, even Rocky Mountain Oysters. But this is over the top. no thank you.

    I had Cricket tacos at a place in DC recently. That's about as far into the insect/arachnid zone as I'll go.

    I suppose it’s a little like eating soft shell crabs, which I could devour. This, however, is a big NO.

    Oven roasted? No thanks. I like my tarantulas pickled.

    Haha.  That is actually a pretty good burger place in town.
