"Show Me Your Tomatoes!" Contest

Came across this tweet by Heelss  that I'd been meaning to share, about a tomato contest being hosted by Cafe Ba Ba Reeba. It is a competition to see who has the largest, heaviest or ugliest homegrown tomato at the 4th Annual "Show Me Your Tomatoes!" Contest. It will be held on August 22nd 2009. Pre-registration is required by calling 773-935-5000

The grower of the tastiest tomato wins a trip for two to Las Vegas.

Judges of the "Show Me your Tomatoes!" Contest are:

Lou Manfredini.
Lyle Allen, Executive Director of Green City Market.
Dougie Tomek, owner of Uncle Dougie's Gourmet Food Products.

Not sure what the connection between tomatoes and Las Vegas is, but a trip for two trumps a staycation, no?
