Tobacco Road's Flying Tomato Smash & Bash: Food Fight With Free Beer

|Ahhh, a bed to tomatoes..|
There, in the parking lot of Tobacco Road they were. A mound of tomatoes, awaiting their fate of being thrown at the head or chest of some human over the weekend.
This Saturday is Tobacco Road's Flying Tomato Smash & Bash, one hot mess of a festival complete with food, drink, live music, and a mechanical bull. The festival starts at noon, and concludes at about 5 p.m. with a massive tomato fight.
Participants (hopefully wearing clothes they no longer care about) will get about a half hour to toss as many tomatoes as they can. What's the purpose? To turn Tobacco Road's backyard into a giant vat of sauce? Nope -- it's just for fun. And a creative way for Tobacco Road co-owner Patrick Gleber to get rid of some tomatoes that didn't make the grade for food from his hydroponic farm in Homestead.

Registration for the food fight starts at 3:30 p.m. Participants will have to fill out a waiver, as well as get their picture taken. When the whistle blows, they'll have 30 minutes to make as big a mess as they possibly can. Afterward, Tobacco Road will treat those individuals to a beer -- on the house.
Our helpful hint? Bring a change of clothes before getting into that leased BMW you're so fond of.
