Unknown North Austin restaurant getting makeover

You probably already know the score from that time when you binge-watched a whole season subsisting on leftover pizza and and box wine; but in case you don’t Restaurant: Impossible is a hit show that pairs failing eateries with celebrity chef/ notable torso Robert Irvine in an effort to revitalize their business.

What you might not know is that normal folks (like you or your PTA nemesis) can pitch in to make the transformation happen. The Food Network series is looking for skilled contractors, electricians, plumbers, upholsters, and painters for one of three shifts on Thursday, Feb. 18 (noon-7pm or 7pm-2am) or Fri., Feb 19 (10:30am-6pm). Applicants must be over 18 and must be willing to be on TV (that means wear work clothing and appropriate shoes – no logos allowed). Volunteers are not limited to one shift, but it is an unpaid position (meals will be provided).

Interested parties should email with the subject line: FN 1306 TX Volunteer. State your preferred shift(s), full name, email address, cell number, and skill set or profession (ex: plumber or painter).
