August 29: National Chop Suey Day

Many early American Chinese restaurants were known simply as chop suey houses, and the bold letters announcing their signature dish were present across the urban US. Attributable more to Chinese-Americans than Chinese nationals, this beloved dish can contain a variety of meats like beef, chicken or shrimp, cabbage, celery, and the ever present bean sprouts. Delicious!
