Teressa Trusty, current president of the Stanford Alumni in Eugene, writes to invite all visiting fans to join local alumni for a brunch prior to the Stanford-Oregon game. The game is at 1pm on Sunday March 1st. Brunch will be from 11am at the Wild Duck Cafe, 1419 Villard St., just across from Matt Knight Arena.
The PAC-12 tournament starts just four days later in Seattle, on March 5th. If you haven't booked your hotel for that trip, consider the Hotel Five, a boutique hotel under the Monorail. If you enter the promo code SALE in this online booking form you will find rooms from $150-$170. The hotel is just under a mile walk to Key Arena, but they offer complementary bicycles for guests, and a free shuttle service which unfortunately stops at 5:30pm. (But you know what works? There are usually pedicabs hanging around Key Arena evenings, and a pedicab ride would be a fairly cheap way to get back to the hotel after the evening session.)
