Love lift us up
When Waffle Love turned off its iron last October, it wasn’t because it wanted to. The sale of its Hydrostone building left the business owners locationless—until now. “I think we saw every retail space in Halifax,” says coowner Ania Benko. This Friday she and Matt Webb will re-open their sweet little restaurant at 2082 Gottingen Street (next door to Field Guide) at 9am. “Food has always been a big thing for me and my siblings, we’d sneak out to fast food places without my parents knowing. They were really old fashioned,” says Benko of why she got into the restaurant world. The second iteration of Waffle Love will be a little bigger and a little more modern, offering an expanded selection of pierogis—which Benko’s been making “since I was born”—and the same waffle menu you fell for at the old location. The folks at downtown Dartmouth’s Souper Duper Soup (156 Octherloney Street) are bowing down to bacon this weekend. On Friday night from 4 to 8pm, the liquid loving business and its friends will celebrate the best meat with a Bacon Extravaganza, a special event to round out a week-long session of serving bacon-inspired dishes every day at Souper Duper. Guests in attendance will include the Clever Barkeep with cocktails, Still Fired Distilleries, Humble Pie (with steak and bacon pies) and even bacon-flavoured dog treats, courtesy of Kaycee’s Creations and Two Paws Up, for your main squeeze. It’s a cash only event and, speaking of cash, don’t hog all of yours— Feed Nova Scotia will be on-site collecting donations.
