Get Sauced

Beat people to a pulp at Tomato Battle NYC

Full_tomatobattlenyc

So you've probably heard of this crazy festival that happens in the little town of Buñol, Spain.

La Tomatina, it's called, and it involves hordes of insane Spaniards hurling tons of lycopene-rich fruits at each other.

Well, it's coming to our city at Tomato Battle NYC. And you will be there, and you will get sauced.

Interpret that any way you like, because there will be both 100,000 pounds of fresh, juicy tomato ammo along with tons of beer. (In the event of a tomato shortage, the event will become a mud battle instead. Which is kind of equally awesome.)

The rules are simple: 1) Pick up a tomato. 2) Throw it at the nearest victim.

It's going down next month at the Aviator Sports & Events Center, way the hell out in the a$$-end of Brooklyn. (And just a hop away from the beach at Jacob Riis Park.)

But this is the kind of thing for which you'll want to sign up now.

Let us repeat: 100,000 pounds of tomatoes. And beer.
