ALAN BERNER / THE SEATTLE TIMES
Seattle-based Super Geek League hosted the inaugural "Tomato Battle: Seattle" at Pioneer Square's Pyramid Alehouse on Saturday, Sept. 24, 2011. There were more than 50,000 overly ripe pieces of the fruit, and combatants tossed them at each other until all that was left was pulp and juice. The event also included a Battle of the Bands contest among rockers from the Pacific Northwest. A portion of the proceeds benefited White Center Food Bank and the Tilted Thunder Rail Birds.
