A brand new pop-up space in Halifax celebrated its opening with an epic waffle pop-up party just in time for National Waffle Day. The pop-up space, cleverly named 'The Chameleon,' hosted an all-you-can-eat waffle party as its first event. Along with a DJ, dancing and gourmet beverages, guests could enjoy their fill of six waffle creations, included in the price of their ticket.

Waffles on offer featured three savory and three sweet mini dishes, including a spicy jalapeno cornbread waffle with crispy pecan chicken bites and a decadent vanilla waffle with seasonal berry compote, Greek yogurt and granola crumble -- great inspirations for National Waffle Day recipes.

The event was hosted in support of Nourish Nova Scotia, an organization that serves health-conscious meals to those in need and provides nutritional education to Nova Scotia communities. It also occurred -- appropriately -- just before National Waffle Day. The Chameleon plans to be a space that exclusively hosts experiential, food and beverage-focused pop-up bar nights, so this waffle pop-up is a first among many innovative events. Increasingly, today's bar patron is willing to pay a higher price for a unique and memorable experience, rather than repetitively frequenting the same bars or partaking in traditional forms of entertainment. Taking this shift into consideration, The Chameleon's new model of event hosting and bar management is a fascinating modern venture.
