What’s a Boodle Fight?
As part of our efforts to facilitate faculty – staff bonding in our reorganization, we hosted a “boodle fight” which basically is family style eating with your hands off of a long table of rice, meat, and vegetables. We’ve heard that the origins of this is the Philippines military, where it’s the one experience in which military rank goes out the window and power dynamics are suspended for a short time. For us, it was a fun experience and definitely a new cross-cultural experience to add to the many we’ve had here!
Maybe you can do a boodle fight for your next family dinner together!
