It's official: the Westside Urban Market's annual Killer Tomato Festival (benefiting Georgia Organics) is now tradition. 3 in a row makes it so, right? It's etched into the city's calendar. The winners, participants, and inventive dishes will surely change, but the event's capacity for generating fun with food is all the staying power it needs.
The weather: hot. The atmosphere: carnival. The mixologists: unbelievably inventive. The chefs: truly inspired. The music: The Spazmatics again!
