Giants Let Freak Flag Fly For Garcia

The San Francisco Giants have announced plans to honor Bay Area guitarist Jerry Garcia on August 9, the anniversary of the late Grateful Dead leader's 1995 death.  Proceeds from the sale of seats in the Garcia section of AT&T Park for that night's game against the Chicago Cubs will go to the Rex Foundation, a Dead supported charity.  Fans in the section will receive a Garcia bobblehead.  Members of the Garcia family will throw out the ceremonial first pitch and Dead tribute bands are being lined up to entertain before game time.  There is bound to be enough tie-dye in that section that even first-timers at the stadium formerly known as Pac-Bell Park should have no trouble finding their way to the Garcia section.  Our question is will vendors be selling more than the traditional ballpark fare in that section?
