By now, Brood X cicadas are everywhere, from local tree trunks to the local news. You can get even more up-close and personal with the invading insects—and finally test the rumor that they taste like shrimp. Bloomington group “All Creatures Yum!” is putting on a festival-style event (which also features an informational session and plenty of options that do not involve insect-dining) June 4–19. Bloomington favorite Le Petit Cafe is one of the restaurants that has signed on to create some cicada desserts. It’s a once-in-a-generation opportunity to make some delicious—or gross, we don’t know—memories.
