The Food Network's 24 Hour Restaurant Battle -- wherein two teams must open a restaurant within the ridiculous time frame of 24 hours -- is hosting an open casting call next Friday here in San Francisco. From the casting director:
"We are looking for charismatic and outgoing two person teams with pre-existing relationships, who have always dreamed of running their own restaurant. Applicants may have lots of restaurant experience, no restaurant experience, or some combination of both. One member of the team will run the “back of the house” and one member will run the “front of the house”. As a team they must have the skills to open and run their own restaurant!"So this could really be your big break. As of today applicants have eight days to fill out the application and all of its fun essay questions before the big day. The casting call takes place at the Westin on Third Street from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. More info is here.
