    That constant beeping sound from behind a closed door in the juror's lounge will not stop for the entire time you're here. Presumably it's been going on since the courthouse was built in 1846. Enjoy!

    Here for jury duty? Pack a phone charger and load you Pocket app with articles the night before. Almost no cell service. Wi-fi on second floor or by witness area on 16th.

    Can't go to Macy's during cigarette break 10 minutes... Clerk has ways of knowing. Don't comeback asking him questions w a cappuccino from Starbucks. I love this guy <3

    There are entrances on all sides of the building. Come in through the side and you won't have any security line at all (only works after 9 am though).

    Some may not know yet but you can bring your wireless devices and they have wifi. Watch for a plug when looking for a seat in the pool; recharge is key

    The security line at 9-9:30 can be long. Better to come early or late. There's wifi in the assembly room.

    If you're lucky enough to have an iPad, bring it. It will help the mind-numbing boringness you will experience here. Free wifi.

    Order Chipotle (super close) via app prior to 1pm so you can pick up your order and skip the line during the court allotted lunch break of 1-2pm.

    Saw the man who maintains the hot drink machine take a pair of scissors and break up the hardened sugar and drink mix. He then wiped the scissors off with his hands. Yuk!

    On court day, enter through Adams Street to try to beat long security lines. Be prepared to wait a long time for an elevator. Not all floors have stair access.

    Wear light layers in the summer. Air conditioning can be unpredictable while you sit in the jury room. Goosebumps all day!

    Food and drink are allowed in if you're serving jury duty, even during the selection process. Don't throw your iced coffee away.

    Check out the awesome 80's ski soda machine in the lounge off of room 261. Frosty refreshment from a past decade!

    Attention jury duty peeps. NO BODY wants to be here, you're not any more special than the rest. Bring a book, charge your phone, bring your laptop. (Wifi here). Its going to be a long and boring ride.

    Had jury duty yesterday. Spent the morning in the jury lounge on my iPhone. The speed is pretty good. Off the hook for 8 years now too.
