What You'll Get

Although tomatoes share many of the properties of grapes, hearing something through a tomato vine is virtually impossible due to the soundproofing qualities of lycopene. Enjoy the scrumptious silence of tomatoes with today’s GrouponLive deal: for $15, you get two tickets to the Palmetto Tasty Tomato Festival, presented by Slow Food Columbia and Sustainable Midlands, on Sunday, July 17, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the City Roots urban sustainable farm (up to a $30 value). Children under 12 receive free admission.

The Palmetto Tasty Tomato Festival celebrates tomatoes of all colors and shapes with an evening of tomato-themed eating, games, competitions, and entertainment. Bands such as Tom Hall and The Plowboys and Lunch Money soothe the most savage vinefruits with their dulcet tones, and a complimentary tasting table entertains epicureans with samples of heirloom tomatoes. Special skee-ball games allow attendees to hurl commercial tomatoes in a socially acceptable setting, and tomato bobbing puts a tomato-centric twist on America's number-one water-based hobby. Festival judges will settle the Homegrown Tomato Contest by choosing the most appealing tomatoes in six prize categories, including best big red and best unusual tomato. A free screening of Attack of the Killer Tomatoes at 9 p.m. provides an entertaining reminder of the hostility that was once the hallmark of human-tomato relations.

An heirloom-tomato sandwich bar will complement local- and sustainable-meal merchants' tomato-based bites, such as pork-belly BLTs with pickled green tomatoes from Bone-In Artisan Barbecue on Wheels. South Carolina–brewed beer and The Whig’s icy white-wine spritzers will also be on hand, quenching thirsts and cooling excited taste buds.
