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:
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?
