I had a revelation on Friday while I was sitting in a Los Angeles court room suffering though the juror selection process.
My revelation was that Jury Duty isn’t all bad. When else do you get an hour and a half long lunch and the opportunity to explore a little piece of downtown LA?
So, when my lunch break came I grabbed a quick bite to eat and set out exploring. My list of sites that day included the MOCA, Angels Flight and the Walt Disney Concert Hall.
Before lunch, my day started at the beautiful Walt Disney Concert Hall. It also serves as your free juror parking.
My first lunch stop was the MOCA. If you didn’t already know, the MOCA loves jurors. They will give you free admission with you juror badge and allow you experience some amazing art.
My second lunch stop was Angels Flight. Angels Flight is a cheap, nostalgic ride into the Los Angeles of yesteryear. Even if you don’t take the $1 ride it is a great photo opp.
And there is so much more to see. An hour and a half can go pretty quickly as you wonder around downtown. It makes me almost wish I could continue my juror service.
So, if you are ever stuck downtown, make sure you stop and look around. It will make jury duty feel almost like a vacation.
