Jury Duty: A Silver Lining

What's the best thing about serving jury duty in the District, besides the $4 transportation check ... oh and the informative and entertaining video that reminds you how important your civic duty is? Being mere steps away from Rasika for lunch!

I'll call it a jury duty oasis, the polar opposite of the depressing courthouse and its monotone monotony: the addictive crispy spinach of the palak chaat, the fluffy naan, and a nose-tingling tuna tawa, coated in spicy mustard seeds with a tangy green apple relish.

The worst part of jury duty? Getting picked. Please excuse any prolonged blog absences next week. Just fulfilling my civic duty.
