    This is a great place to go to have the life sucked out of you.

  • Walgreens

    Your chocolate malted milkshake is waiting at the Juice Bar... or maybe a made-to-order smoothie. Check out the all new Walgreens at State and Randolph!

    Don't come here unless you have to.

    This is not a park bench, so this bench you don't want to be standing in front of, if you are good luck to you.

    If you're going to the clerks office and are a newbie don't be afraid to ask questions. Everyone I dealt with was very helpful.

    Elevator tip: when they're really crowded, pick one door and wait for it. You'll get on faster than if you chase the available cars with the crowd.

    Bradford LeHew · March 25, 2010
  • Jonathan V.

    At least for the elevators going between 23-30, the elevators are crowded between the hours of 9AM and 10AM. You'll wait at least 5 minutes to get on the elevator.

    Jury duty? You're headed to the 17th floor.

    Take the stairs to the lower level off the corner of Dearborn&Washington, to bypass the big line at the security checkpoint, the line is much short on the lower level.

    Bring a stress ball.

    Different sets of elevators go to different set of floors. If you need to transfer between floors, floor 7 is the floor to be at.

    Jury duty without WIFI is a cruel sentence indeed.

    If you hate your job come spend a couple hours here and you'll be happily running back to your office.

    Please come prepared. Pen, notepad, folder, money (cash or checks) and adequate paper work. Also, help is scarce so don't ask how to fill out forms.

    If you don't work here and you're the mayor, you have serious problems.

  • Jose D.

    The girls at the Starbucks on the lower floor always entertain my fake names in the morning. It might seem childish but it helps me start my day.

    The only place downtown that has a taco bell. The DMV is here, so it's like a deeper layer of hell. Enter at your own risk.

    This is more common sense than anything, bring a black or blue pen, some paper to take notes and change to make copies.

    Picasso never explained what the sculpture was intended to represent, his son said it was inspired by a 19 yr old French woman, Sylvette David, (aka) Lydia Corbett, who posed for Picasso in 1954.
