A Marinara Massacre

You waited patiently through your entire academic career for someone to yell “Food fight!” in the cafeteria, thereby sanctioning a spontaneous melee of spaghetti-throwing and pudding-dodging that not even Hollywood could top. It never happened — except that time those jock dudes threw a stick of butter at that goth kid, but that only ended in detention. The Texas Tomato Fight is a detention-free affair, letting those of us who don’t recoil at the thought of all that wasted food live out our Animal House-style food fight fantasy. Organizers will unleash a few hundred thousand pounds of overripe ’maters, along with protective goggles, and let you go to town during the event at Fair Park, 1121 1st Avenue on Saturday. Registration starts at noon; live music and beer tents will keep you entertained until the fruit starts flying around 4 p.m. Tickets are $50 and may be purchased at tomatobattle.com/texas.
