Help me explore downtown Tucson!

I am interviewing for a U of AZ grad program, and the fella will be joining me in Tucson for a few days afterward so we can evaluate whether we like it there. We need suggestions for an awesome visit!

First: a place to stay someplace near downtown. If at all possible we'd like to avoid renting a car, and I've heard the public transport is good. Where can we stay that is accessible and hopefully affordable? Is there a hostel a couple of thirtysomething nerds won't hate?
Second: where to get some nice hippy food? He is vegan, I am gluten intolerant (why yes we are the most annoying dinner guests ever). We freaking love tacos, is there a place that can accommodate us? Where do we get brunch?
Third: fun walks in town, sights to see, watering holes, and other sundry activities. We will be in town this month from a Wednesday night through a Saturday morning with nothing to do but explore and get a feel for the place. Live music, coffee shops, how in general do we have fun there?
Bookstores, punk rock, weird/quirky sights, and any other unusual or mundane suggestions much appreciated.
