PHILADELPHIA - When a natural history museum throws a party, it figures that some unusual food might end up on the menu.
Interested in noshing on crickets, worms and farm-raised python? The Academy of Natural Sciences in Philadelphia has an event for you.
It's hosting an adults-only cocktail party on Oct. 27 called "Cuisine From the Collections."
While many of the living plants and animals represented in the museum's 18 million research specimens already are food for other species, most aren't your typical kitchen staples.
Other menu items will include seaweed, buffalo and rabbit. The food is by the museum's caterer and chefs and students from Drexel University's Goodwin College of Professional Studies.
Tickets are $100 for nonmembers. Proceeds benefit the 200-year-old institution's mission of scientific research and exploration.There are currently no comments for this story.
