Food Network's "Restaurant: Impossible" is coming to Chattanooga on Thursday-Friday, Dec. 19-20, to tape an episode on revitalizing Blue Orleans Restaurant.

"Restaurant: Impossible" is hosted by Chef Robert Irvine. The premise of the show, and Irvine's challenge, is to save restaurants from impending failure in just two days with only $10,000.

Producers are searching for enthusiastic individuals to work with Irvine and his renovation team as design and construction volunteers.

Volunteers must be licensed or certified in painting, crafting, construction, remodeling, cleaning, decorating, etc. Also, skilled contractors, electricians, plumbers, upholsterers and painters are always welcome to help out and donate their time.

The volunteer schedule is as follows:

* Shift 1. Thursday, Dec. 19, noon-7 p.m.

* Shift 2. Thursday, Dec. 19, 7 p.m.-2 a.m.

* Shift 3. Friday, Dec. 20, 10:30 a.m.-6 p.m.

Volunteers must be 18 years of age or older, and sign an appearance release and volunteer agreement on-site. Volunteers must wear sneakers or boots and work clothing with no logos. Meals will be provided volunteers.

Anyone interested should email by Monday, Dec. 16, at noon (PST) with preferred day(s), full name, email address, cell number and skill set/related profession (for example, plumber or painter). Use the following subject line: 1611 TN Volunteer

Anyone who replies to volunteer is guaranteed a spot. Confirmation emails will be sent the day before each day you intend to volunteer.

The public is invited to the grand reopening of Blue Orleans on Friday, Dec. 20, at 7 p.m.
