It's the last nice day before we get pummeled with rain and thunderstorms, which means you should probably grab lunch from a food truck today. There are big clusters of mobile vendors at L'Enfant and in downtown DC. Trucks are also trolling around Dupont Circle and DC's Chinatown. Check our map and list of hot spots to see what's near your office.
