If you're heading down to LA for the Pac-10 tournament, the Tyee Club is inviting all fellow Huskies to gather at the ESPN Zone in Los Angeles prior to this Thursday's game.
The ESPN Zone is at 1011 S. Figueroa Street: just a short walk from Staples Center. The gathering will begin about 12:30 p.m. Thursday, and the game tips at 2:30 p.m.
And actually, while I always enjoy covering the tournament, I'm expecially excited about this season's touranment because of the L.A. Live entertainment complex that should be largely completed just across the street from Staples Center. That area used to be just a parking lot, which tended to make Staples something of an island not really convenient to much of anything on a fringe of downtown. This season, there should be many more options for meeting and fun before, between and after games.
