Happy Diwali

CELEBRATE DIWALI THROUGH FOOD

Tuesday, November 2 through Saturday, November 6

East & West Side Dine-In  |  Chef's Table and International Market

Diwali, the festival of lights, celebrates Lord Rama's eventual defeat of the evil spirit Ravana, and his triumphant return to his home after fourteen years of exile.  It is called the “festival of lights” since it involves the lighting of small clay lamps filled with oil to signify the triumph of good over evil, light over darkness and knowledge over ignorance.  This year’s week-long celebration includes lavish Diwali meals at dining locations throughout campus.
