The Rayburn Courtyard will become home to a hot dog cart and ice cream wagon from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesdays through Thursdays when the House is in session, according to a “Dear Colleague” letter issued by the House Administration Committee on Monday.

The fair-weather-only food facilities, part of an expansion of the Special Orders Deli in Rayburn B-326, include a new outdoor dining area featuring seven concrete tables with umbrellas.

“Come experience the ambience of the courtyard and cool off near the fountain. You can buy your lunch at any of the House locations, bring your brown-bag, or simply relax and enjoy the shade,” the letter states.
