Vancouver, BC | Guests have been hiding love notes and messages in the drawers of an antique coffee table at East of Main Cafe since the restaurant opened this past summer. The letters came as a pleasant surprise to proprietors Maureen Webb and Donalda Weaver. “I opened the drawer and there was a note,” says Donalda. “It seems that letter writing is contagious, as every week there are a few more. It is the highlight of my day to find a new message.”

It has become a secret tradition amongst regular patrons of East of Main, but this Valentine’s Day all guests are encouraged to bring their own letters of love to be placed in the drawers. Valentine’s Day is about love; love of a person, place or thing. Guests are invited to write about whatever love means to them. The letters will be stored in the table, accessible to other diners to read and to be inspired by for years to come.

“We started East of Main Cafe for two reasons; to support Project Limelight and to create a gathering place for the community to share thoughts, ideas and a love for good food and drink,” says Maureen. “These letters are a testament to that.” Learn more after the jump… Read more
