In case you haven’t noticed, tomatoes are in a frenzy right now, thanks to all the unripe fruit on the vine when the heat wave hit. Farmers at our local farmers markets are now offering flats of tomatoes, including heirlooms, at great prices, perfect if you are into preserving. If you don’t see them offered, asked. Everyone who grows tomatoes needs to get rid of them.

If you’d rather sit back and simply enjoy tomatoes, consider an evening at Carneros Bistro and Wine Bar. Through Sunday, the Sonoma restaurant is featuring a three-course tomato tasting menu ($45) along with a la carte selections. But this isn’t the best part. The cult-classic Attack of the Killer Tomatoeswill be shown continuously in the dining room and in the bar throughout the week.

If you're up for some dumb fun, check out this cult classic and enjoy a yummy tomato feast at the same time.
