Comedy duo? Nope. It's Toddish McWong's (aka Todd Wong) 12-year-old Scottish/Chinese cultural celebration, Gung Haggis Fat Choy™,
that fuses Robbie Burns Day with Chinese New Year. The 12-course Robbie
Burns Chinese New Year dinner is a “quirky fusion/mix/buffet of
Scottish-Canadian and Chinese-Canadian including haggis served with
plum and/or sweet and sour sauces” and features a mix of entertainment
with contributions by opera singer Heather Pawsey, kilted Highland
dancers, and the Silk Road Ensemble. Tickets for the January 30
banquet, taking place at Floata Chinese Restaurant (400­180 Keefer
Street) are $60 (at 604-689-0926). If this queers your stomach, sign up
for Burns & Byrnes, a Robbie Burns Day whisky tasting at
Barbara-Jo's Books to Cooks (1128 Mainland Street) on Tuesday (January
25). Jim Byrnes toasts the haggis while you nose single malts with
expert Bruce McKenzie and take home Charles Maclean's Scotch Whisky, A Liquid History (Sterling, 2003). Cost is $125.
