Sarah Lazarovic––curator of the garage-based Montrose Portrait Gallery of Canada––is painting a portrait of a Torontonian (be they grannies or gardeners or Gord Perks) every day for one hundred days. Each Monday, we’ll feature one of those portraits here.
This is Mr. Golden Star, proprietor of a Thornhill burger joint that some consider the best in town. Now into his 80s, he can still be seen manning the till into the wee hours, trying to convince you of the merits of a midnight milkshake. If you’re lucky, he may perform an extemporaneous rap. Ours went something along the lines of:
“We give you the best!
We beat all the rest!
AT THE STAR!”
