Whether it’s Drive-By Truckers’ Patterson Hood’s opinion that there are “few things on Earth better than a homegrown tomato,” the infamous Hellman’s vs. Duke’s mayonnaise argument or the general nostalgia surrounding heirlooms, Georgia tomato sandwiches are a phenomenon, and the 4th Annual Tomatoes at Terrapin is here to rejoice in it. A fundraiser to benefit the Athens Nurses Clinic, the event hones into an important issue for Athens: health care. As a non-profit organization, Athens Nurses Clinic provides free medical services to uninsured low- to no- income residents of Athens and surrounding areas. Terrapin beer will be provided alongside the locally grown, donated tomatoes, and live music will be performed by MrJordan MrTonks. Chairs, blankets and kids are welcome. Event kicks off at 5:30 p.m. and costs $20 in advance or $24 at the door.
