"Jury Duty! UGH."
I'm writing mainly to help all you new to downtown JuryDuty people who have their lunch break and want to go further than the cafeteria, which only takes cash. Who has cash!? I ask you. Clearly there is NOTHING in this area but a less than charming park across the street, occassional protesters, alleged "felons", and public servants- though for the most part it is cleanly maintained and is a close step to the redline and a little bit of a hefty walk UP the hill to Grand... where you can find a California Pizza Kitchen and some corporate lunch eateries. But I say take the slope down to Broadway and 3rd. You'll find the Grand Central Market, El Pollo Loco AND the Bradbury Building, which is truly a beautiful thing to behold. Go to it and get out there!
