VIDEO: Local Valentine's Day Rants against Exes

This year in New Canaan, we're giving air time to bitter rants against ex-boyfriends and ex-girlfriends on Valentine's Day.


Flowers, candy, candelight. Beach walking, hand holding, pillow talking. Gratitude, transparency ... And often in retrospect, venom.

Here's a light look around New Canaan Wedensday, Valentine's Day Eve.

We hear from Lorenzo Colella of Joe's Pizza and Tucker Murphy, president of the New Canaan Chamber of Commerce.

Thanks to Lorenzo, Tucker and everyone else in this video for being such good sports—truly.

Happy Valentine's Day, everyone. Be sure to check out our other lovey-dovey local coverage:

Hilarious! I went to Napa Valley in 1999 and brought back a gorgeous bottle of wine in a beautiful wooden box and gave it to my boyfriend, whom I'd missed on the trip. He broke up with me the next day. I still think about that wine—but now I'm going to think about Tickle Me Elmo.
