Just because one venue has more food trucks than another doesn't make the larger venue necessarily better, just like a restaurant with a bigger menu isn't better than one with fewer choices. A prime example is the Beats & Eats gatherings at Bluxome St. Winery, a working winery a stone's throw from AT&T Park and Cal Train.
