Insane Food Festivals

| 7/21/2010 2:12:11 PM


If you’re looking for some derring-do on your vacation, you have two choices. You can do something extremely lame, like rock climbing, or you can fight in the World Gravy Wrestling Championships. The Stew, the Chicago Tribune’s food, wine, and dining blog, has some other options as well, on their list of ten “wacky food festivals” happening around the world this summer. Aside from those gravy gladiators in the U.K., there’s also a pierogi tossing contest in Indiana—or a tomato tossing party in Spain. For my money, though, nothing is more valiant than dousing yourself in chicken stock and tussling with another full-grown adult.

(Thanks, The Consumerist.)
