If you’ve seen Temple of Doom, you already know: Indiana Jones, fresh off of dodging a snake, took a big mouthful of beetles. We think he enjoyed it – no, we know he enjoyed it because he went back again and did it with Shia Lebouf 20 years later in The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. It’s obviously a special treat.

Now, you too can rock a fedora, a whip, and enjoy some crunchy critters at La Cocina on Wednesday, October 30, just in time for Halloween.

Learn to make handmade chocolate covered crickets, crispy mealworm mix and all sorts of creepy crawly dishes sure to spook your friends! Join Monica Martinez from Don Bugito as she teaches you to make some tricky treats and the joys that come from buggin out: jicama wedges with lime and tajin pepper, an insect taste test, wax moth larvae tacos, chocolate covered crickets, and of course, some tasty beverages to wash down your latest culinary adventure.

What better way to celebrate Halloween?! Especially if you come dressed as Indiana Jones – in fact, we promise to come as his dad, Sean Connery. Ready for a group costume with a side of pre-hispanic cuisine? Us too!
