    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.

    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.
