Silly question - is it weird to bring a cup of coffee to an interview? Is there expectation to not bring any beverages other than a bottle of water? I personally think coffee is fine

"It's fine. Do what makes you comfortable".
Crop dust the secretary when you arrive. Light up a fat stogie whilst swilling a glass of bourbon in the interview. Steal the mints and some unused k-cups on the way out.

There’s one white, female associate on my floor who I’m friendly with, however, whenever she talks to me she always finds a way to bring up race/diversity.

I’ve seen & heard her interact with (white) associates and partners a million times, even in convos complaining about firm issues, without ever raising these topics. Justifiably annoyed?

Sort of a silly question, but I’m curious about team dinners. How often do they occur on a project with travel? Weekly? 2-3 per week?
