Contest 279: Crimson Face

After Harvard faculty members declared a lack of confidence in President Larry Summers in the wake of some controversial comments, he decided to slip away for a weekend retreat in a town northeast of Virginia, Minn.

Name the town.

In Contest 277, we told you that in anticipation of Selection Sunday, the NCAA was standing by to scoop up the losing teams and fly them to a town northeast of Miskolc, Hungary. Congratulations to Maureen O'Donnell of Arlington, who wins a Travel section mousepad for pinpointing Mad.
