St. Valentines Day Massacre Banner

Introduction – Saint Valentine’s Day Massacre

This is not the infamous 1929 Chicago gangland slaying you may know of in which Al Capone was the suspected mastermind. No, this is the St. Valentine’s Day Massacre held annually by the Vancouver Theatresports League – an international improvisational competition whereby teams slay each other sometimes with spontaneous sarcasm, other times with brazen bafoonery and often times with ruthless ridicule but always with wiley wit… Check it out if you can – they’ll kill you with laughter!

After a light continental breakfast at the hotel I was famished by lunch time. Didn’t want any boring, processed chain restaurant food when I happened across a highway sign “Heaven on Earth”.
