Now at Groupon (Seattle): Hurl Roma Tomatoes in a Crowd of 5,000

I can’t say I’ve ever seen a Groupon deal quite like this.

For $25, you can participate in a massive food fight where 5,000 people will basically be hurling roma tomatoes at each other (a value of $50!). This will be hosted at Pyramid Alehouse on August 11th. Apparently there will also be beer and live music at this event and you need to be 21 to attend.

There is a limited number of this Groupon available, so head to Groupon Seattle if interested.

Does anyone know if this is something they do every year? I’m strangely intrigued…

    Can’t get people to donate $25 to buy the tomatoes for the needy instead of wasting them.

      If it makes you feel any better, a reader on my Facebook page said that the tomatoes are rotten. ;)

    There is a huge festival in Spain called “La Tomatina” that is right around the same time of the year that started in the 1930′s. Maybe they are bringing the tradition to the US? Looks like fun, though I agree with the idea that it can be a waste.
