I’ve always been able to get out of jury duty. In California the trick is to say you work on commission and they let you go immediately. Here in Brooklyn it’s a little different. I got picked and served 2 weeks in Grand Jury. It’s actually not so bad since I was able to learn a lot about the law and hit up a few good places to eat nearby.
Day 1. I went to a sandwich shop named Zam’s. It’s ok, it’s not bad but nothing special.
Day 2. I ditched Jury Duty to go to work
Day 3. On the recommendation of a friend I checked out Yemen Cafe on Atlantic @ Court. It’s kind of a hike from the courthouse but I think it’s worth it. You’ll see a lot of cab drivers along with some locals. It’s barebones interiors but the food is pretty good.
I got the Loubia which is Yemeni risotto, lamb cooked with vegetables served with rice or bread for $10. (A lot of food – maybe not the best for trying to stay awake during jury duty)
