Are Vendy Awards Worth $80?

I am debating buying a ticket to the Vendy Awards. I've been hitting the street trucks for 10 years now and am a big fan. Actually, I've hit them before that at Rutgers in NJ, my first "grease truck" introduction (Fat Cat anyone?) which then evolved into a Philadephia "grease trucks" dining at UPENN.

But I am debating whether to spend $160 for two tickets to the Vendy Awards. $80/person is expensive, when I eat from a good chunk of these trucks for $10.

Additionally, the partner I may go with is vegetarian. I would hate to spend $80 for her to eat a vegetable fried rice and a falafel..

I understand the need to support trucks.. and I do a few times a week (by frequenting their establishments).. BUT.. $80 to wait on even longer lines for same food (this annoys me a lot honestly..).. plus a few beers.. seems a bit much?

Someone convince me to go.. please :-)
