I Love the Smell of Tomatoes in the Morning

October 21, 2011

Actually, it will be in the afternoon but don’t get all red in the face. You can get red all over! It’s the Tomato Battle, happening right here at Fairplex tomorrow (Oct. 22). Their motto – Beer. Bands. Tomato Fight. It’s known as the biggest food fight of your life. What a great way to get out the aggression of the week – throw some tomatoes at some poor soul. Pelt your partner. Mash the missus. Fruit your friend (yes, tomatoes are fruits, not vegetables. Look it up).

The SoCal Tomato Battle fun runs from noon to 8 p.m., with the actual tomato throwing happening at 4:30 p.m. Tickets are $59.99 for participants. Spectators can watch the saucing for $29.99. Buy tickets online here.

And before you ask, the tomatoes used are all past the ripe stage and cannot be sold.

Tomato up.
