Things To Do In Vancouver This Weekend

title2016_0211

It’s Valentine’s Day weekend, and whether you’re partnered, coupled, or some other variation, make sure to enjoy it! After all, it has been over 1000 years since St. Valentine of Rome and, in that time, the definitions of romance and relationships have been modernized quite a bit. Want to show some love to your platonic lifemates? Do it. Want to celebrate yourself in an awesome day of turning your phone off and doing whatever you want? Sounds fantastic. If you’d rather cuddle up to your lover and coo at each other – do that! Throw in some heart-shaped things and a bit of hedonism and you’ve got yourself a good day.
