So we just found out about a murder outside our banquet hall January! We shopped around, making sure to pick one in a good neighbourhood too. It’s in our city’s banquet hall row, there’s at least 25 in the area.
Not worried though. I mean, shootings can happen anywhere. They’re rarely random. I’m sure we’re fine (though we won’t tell any of the guests about it lol.) Banquet hall says it was in the parking lot, not inside, and looking at the TV tape of people walking out, there were family functions going on.
We’ve gone to the hall to check it out/pay deposits, and some major corporate clients (like an international fast food burger chain, and national union with thousands of members) were having their Christmas parties there. It’s pretty reputable and has been around for about 50 years!
Anyway, I probably shouldn’t say anything more about it, but I’m sorry for the couple whose wedding had to be moved because police tape was blocking off their wedding venue!
