“Tarantula challenge”

God Bless America

Recipe for success?

Eateries are always looking for new dishes to entice customers, but the Bull City Burger and Brewery in Durham, NC may have gone a dish too far when it added Tarantula Burgers to its menu. Then again, says the Association of Mature American Citizens [AMAC], the restaurant did offer a prize for patrons who paid $30 for the tasty treat – a “tarantula challenge” T-shirt. In case you’re wondering, the specialty burger is made with pasture-raised beef, Gruyere cheese and a “lightly salted and oven-baked” tarantula.

A saga of the off off-ramp

Eric White, the owner of the Big Indian Smoke Shop on the Cattaraugus Indian Reservation in upstate New York wanted to make it easier for customers to get to this store. So he started building his own Thruway exit leading directly to his establishment. The authorities may not be able to put the kibosh on White’s roadwork, according to the Association of Mature American Citizens [AMAC]. You’d think a permit would be required but a spokesman for the Federal    Highway Administration says the rules might be different on tribal land. The agency says it is looking into the matter.

No smoking

A Sonic drive-through restaurant in Gulfport, MS may be setting a precedent in this new era of legalized marijuana. The store’s manager has posted a sign for would-be customers, reports the Association of Mature American Citizens [AMAC]. It reads: “ATTENTION: If you are smoking weed in the drive thru you will not be served! Please show some common courtesy and smoke and air out before pulling up to order.”
