Far East enters Newcomb It's almost the weekend and that means shelving your meal plan for more exciting local fare. Even if your taste buds are dancing for one of the Downtown Mall's fancy cafes or the Corner's charming eateries, the cost of weekend eating excursions can be rough on the college budget. In order to quench your craving for take-out this weekend, make your way over to the Newcomb Hall Ballroom tomorrow for Chinafest 2001 - a taste of the Far East. Beginning at 1 p.m., the Chinese Student Association and the Hong Kong Student Association will present a celebration of Chinese culture and cuisine. Featured booths include Chinese painting, vegetable carving, name translations and calligraphy.   Related Links Hong Kong Student Association Web site Chinese Student Association Web site Performances of traditional Asian dancing, kung fu, Chinese yo-yo and Lion Dances begin at 2 p.m. These two groups and its members help link the University to the Asian culture.
