Nibbles: A Tomato Festival
I promise you that, come winter and spring, the only time I will talk about tomatoes is when I am making a casserole or a stew. But right now, I’m all about the tomatoes, the beautiful local tomatoes just coming into season. If you want to celebrate and don’t mind taking a little ride, on Saturday, Aug. 24, from 4 to 6 p.m., there will be a tomato festival at Stone Acres Farm, 393 North Main Street, Stonington. For $40 (plus tax and gratuity), there will be chefs serving “the most versatile fruit in multiple dishes, drinks, and live music,” according to Stone Acres. I am not sure there will be tomato music. Craft cocktails, beer, and wine will be available à la carte. The event will be outside at the farm, so dress accordingly. If you are coming with friends, use your name to book under or you’ll be seated at random with new friends. For tickets, go to 85thdaygroup.com.
