Tomato season is finally here, and there’s less than a month until the big tomato showdown at JCT. Kitchen & Bar. Don’t forget to grab your tickets to the Attack of the Killer Tomato Festival before Friday, July 1, when prices go up to $70 per ticket. You definitely don’t want to miss when tomato forces roll into JCT. on Sunday, July 17. There will be no tomato-fortified drink or dish left standing when the battle is over. JCT. Executive Chef/Owner Ford Fry is behind the shindig, hosting more than 40 of the Southeast's best chefs, farmers and mixologists to join forces to benefit Georgia Organics. The Spazmatics and local chef band Five Bone Rack will provide the live-music soundtrack to this summer epic.
Cost is $55 per person for Georgia Organics members and $60 for non-members until Thursday, June 30. Purchase tickets online. For more information, visit the festival's Facebook page.
JCT. Kitchen & Bar: In Atlanta's Westside Urban Market at 1198 Howell Mill Road, Suite 18; 404-355-2252.
