‘Restaurant Impossible’ is Coming to GR & They Need YOUR Help!
After a 2-year cancellation, Food Network recently brought back the show Restaurant Impossible and it's a good thing because a restaurant in Grand Rapids has enlisted the help of Chef Robert Irvine.
MLive reports that the show will be in town Sunday, May 19 and Monday, the 20th to help Chez Olga turn things around. If you're not familiar with the show, celebrity Chef Irvine helps failing restaurants in two days with a $10K budget. This is where you come in. Irvine and the production team are looking for volunteers to help with the construction and design process such as painting, building, cleaning, etc. According to the call sheet (via MLive)
...looking for skilled contractors, electricians, plumbers, upholsters’ and painters to help out and donate their time but we welcome all skill sets and skill levels always.
