Abstract: Let $ \mathbb{Z}_3$ act on $ \mathbb{C}^2$ by non-trivial opposite characters. Let $ \mathcal{X}=[\mathbb{C}^{2}/\mathbb{Z}_3]$ be the orbifold quotient, and let $ Y$ be the unique crepant resolution. We show that the equivariant genus 0 Gromov-Witten potentials $ F^{\mathcal{X}}$ and $ F^{Y}$ are equal after a change of variables--verifying the Crepant Resolution Conjecture for the pair $ (\mathcal{X},Y)$. Our computations involve Hodge integrals on trigonal Hurwitz spaces, which are of independent interest. In a self-contained Appendix, we derive closed formulas for these Hurwitz-Hodge integrals.
