On July 14, Tomato Battle comes to San Diego (404 Euclid Ave). Each year, thousands throng to the event in various cities for live music, dancing, alcohol, and nearly 300,000 pounds of roma tomatoes. The event opens at 1 p.m. with live music and a costume contest, then the battle, and wash-up. The tomatoes are overripe and marked for disposal rather than sales; Tomato Battle's website calls this an "efficient and entertaining use of nonedible waste."

Registration is required, and goggles are recommended, as well as shoes with tread, and a change of clothes.

Did anyone else have a hard time finding the place? I went with other friends and we were going to meet there but we never found the place. We went to both Euclid, S Euclid, and even Euclid in North Park and never found the place. There must have been other people that had the same problem. I looked on our ticket, the internet, tried finding the address on 2 GPS systems.

Can I hear from others?

Thanks, Lin
