On October 28 in collaboration with JustEat.ca, 86'D at the Drake Hotel presents the "Campus Chompionship" (spelling intentional) where award-winning competitive food eater Takeru Kobayashi will chow down alongside student finalists in this ultimate edible challenge.The weekly 86'D industry nights (read: Mondays) are always interesting and unique. Host and celebu-foodie Ivy Knight brings together fellow gourmands and gastronomes, plus discounted bar specials, tasty treats and a jolly good time... for free.
In a recent challenge, Kobayashi ate 10 pizzas in 12 minutes to become Canada's food eating champion at the Pie Wood Fired Pizza Joint in Barrie.
The Japanese phenom, who appears more welterweight than heavyweight, ate out his competition for the fourth year in a row. He's got hero status for the young students competing to be the best chomper on campus. (The $5K prize money ain't bad either.)
