Photo Gallery: The battle in Seattle (of the tomato variety)

There may be no better cure for the end of summer than cold beer, live music and hurling tomatoes at your friends.

Tomato Battle at the Pyramid Ale House Saturday was the messiest, happiest, and most entertaining event I have ever witnessed in Seattle. It was also a thrilling place for a photographer.

Telephoto lens and camera protector in tow I braved the flying red juice and managed to capture some shots from the action.

While my camera was unscathed, I wasn’t so lucky. I left the event smelling of my favorite vegetable and thinking how much I love this hilarious city.

Conceived by Startup Weekend’s Clint Nelsen and bankrolled by Seattle angel investor Andy Sack, Tomato Battle is looking to go global with its tomato tossing frivolity.

Look for it in a city near you soon.
