A Celebration of the Birthday of Robert Burns
and Chinese New Year
Covid-19 protocols resulted in a pause celebrating Gung Haggis Fat Choy in Seattle. We are considering again hosting the in-person event later this year or next year, possibly at a new location. We will be posting updates.
A Brief History of Todd Wong's Trademarked Gung Haggis Fat Choy
Gung Haggis Fat Choy! Huh?! In 2007 Bill McFadden, then President of the Caledonian & St. Andrew's Society, introduced Todd Wong's trademarked production of "Gung Haggis Fat Choy" to Seattle. Billed as "A Celebration of Chinese New Year and Robert Burns' Dinner", the laughter-filled evening included haggis, a delicious Chinese dinner, Pipes & Drums (traditional and fusion style), sing-alongs (including "When Asian/Scottish Eyes are Smiling" and "My Haggis/Chow Mein Lies Over the Ocean"), Poems, The Address tae the Haggis (delivered in rap to an enthusiastic and responsive crowd) and Auld Lang Syne sung in both Mandarin Chinese and English.
