Food Network’s “Restaurant: Impossible” show is coming to LaPorte’s SEVEN restaurant, 502 State St.! The popular show, featuring Chef Robert Irvine, features renovations of restaurants to boost their appeal. As the show’s website states, “Robert assesses all of the restaurant’s facets and then overhauls its weakest spots by updating menus, retraining staff and implementing aesthetic changes with the help of his design team, before hitting the streets to tell the community about the improved restaurant.”
Food Network is taping at SEVEN on Sept. 18 and 19, and needs volunteers. According to a press release sent to WNLP: “We are looking for individuals to help with the renovation of the restaurant over the two days. Design volunteers will be painting, crafting, construction, remodeling, cleaning, decorating, etc. (depending on your skill set). Always looking for skilled contractors as well in their fields to help out (electricians, plumbers, painters, etc.).”
Volunteers should report for duty at SEVEN on Wednesday, Sept. 18, from 1 to 8 p.m. and Thursday, Sept. 19, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. “This is a volunteer position, but meals will be provided. Also a great way to meet people in your field and contribute to a good cause in the area! You should be okay with being on camera and wear comfortable clothing and sneakers/boots with no logos,” the press release advised.
“Assistants are not limited to one shift. If interested, please email Nick (firstname.lastname@example.org) with your preferred shift or shifts, full name, email address and cell number. SUBJECT LINE: FN LA PORTE VOLUNTEERS”
Then a grand reopening of SEVEN is scheduled for Thursday, Sept. 19, starting at 7 p.m. Call SEVEN for more information at 219.380.5454.
Here’s some info on the show and how it works from its website: “Restaurant: Impossible continues its successful run as one of the network’s most popular shows, with Robert attempting to save America’s most desperate restaurants from impending failure in just two days with only $10,000. During the course of each extreme mission, Robert assesses all of the restaurant’s facets and then overhauls its weakest spots by updating menus, retraining staff and implementing aesthetic changes with the help of his design team, before hitting the streets to tell the community about the improved restaurant.”
