We couldn't wait to check out Rainbow City, the 40-piece installation by the artistic duo FriendsWithYou (Sam Borkson and Arturo Sandoval III). The giant playground opened to the public yesterday for Art Basel and it was the perfect setting to have a picnic.

Sitting on one of the installation's candy-striped blankets, we ate crabby cheese melt -- crabb salad with sharp cheddar on buttery sourdough -- and sweet potato fries from Ms. Cheezious. For dessert, we had a surprisingly satisfying Oreo-Rice Krispy treat from the Sugar Rush dessert truck. Both trucks made their debut Friday.


Several other food trucks will park at Rainbow City throughout the weekend. Ms. Cheezious and The Rolling Stove will be back today from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and gastroPod Miami is scheduled to be there on Sunday from 4 p.m. to 11 p.m. If you're in the Design District, you can avoid the crowds at restaurants and eat some food on the lawn. Just watch out for the giant blimpie-looking art pieces. The wind led one to plant a kiss on our heads.
