The Other White Meat?

I have eaten some slightly exotic meals during the time I have spent working in New Orleans — from andouille sausage to alligator. But I almost ran a red light when I was driving last week in the Gentilly neighborhood and saw this storefront.

No, they do not consider "spider meat" a delicacy in the Crescent City. I went inside and bought a soda, and a quick look-around reassured me that the only meat they sell at Spider Meat is of the beef, pork and chicken variety.

But someone with a Master's degree in marketing would probably advise the proprietors to change the name of their meat and mini-mart.
