Sarah Lazarovic—curator of the garage-based Montrose Portrait Gallery of Canada—is painting a portrait of a Torontonian every day. Each Monday, we’ll feature one of those portraits here. Suggestions for subjects welcome.

Who knew that one of the world’s best competitive eaters hailed from Toronto? Yesterday, “Furious” Pete Czerwinski trounced competitors in a New York Latke eating contest, bringing a gluttonous spirit to the Festival of Lights. One would think competitive eating and good phyisical health were mutually exclusive, but our own Furious Pete is also a bodybuilder. Happy Chanukah!
