Napa is no slouch when it comes to dining, so we were excited to explore the food truck scene at Friday's once-a-month Napa Valley food truck rally.
Staged in a dirt lot right next to Oxbow Public Market (it's used for construction during the day), which houses the semipermanent Dim Sum Charlie's Airstream trailer most evenings and weekends, Friday night's event was picturesque and festive. The young crowd, fire pit, live music, BYOB ― it felt more like a backyard party than a food pod. The trucks circled a heater-lined picnic area (a second picnic area was situated above, where bands played throughout the night). With 10 food vendors in attendance there were plenty of choices, and seating for all.
