The world’s biggest food fight occurred last week in Spain, complete with climbing a pole topped with a giant ham and an insane amount of tomatoes.  (Smithsonian)

Meatopia is coming.  September 8.  Enough said.  How can you resist an event described as the “Woodstock of Edible Animals”? (Meatopia)

Pretty much every restaurant in North Brooklyn will be at TASTE Williamsburg Greenpoint on September 9 – maybe you should be there, too? (TASTE Williamsburg Greenpoint)

Also coming up for September 9: a second Smorgasburg is set to open at the DUMBO waterfront. (Brooklyn Flea)

And, as if there weren’t enough food events going on, here’s one more to add to your list – Le Fooding is coming to Brooklyn and is sounding like it will be a much more refined and classier version of Googa Mooga. (Le Fooding)

On the heels of our last food news post, President Obama announces the unveiling of the White House Honey Ale recipe in his Reddit AMA, and finally releases it on The White House official website. (Chicago Tribune)

Lastly, baker extraordinaire Dorie Greenspan and CookieBar company are turning their popular pop-up shop into actual physical shops in East Harlem and the LES. Do yourself a favor and pick up a World Peace cookie.  (Dorie Greenspan)
