So how'd that Thanksgiving go yesterday? Did you dazzle guests with your cooking? Was a particular spouse, ex-spouse, sibling, child, cousin or best friend especially helpful with polishing silver and setting the table?

If so, you and your new partner in memorable dining might want to spend the coming week buffing your bubbly personalities for the Food Network's casting call at Westin Park Central next Saturday, December 4 from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. The network's seeking competitors for the next season of 24-Hour Restaurant Battle, a program that pits two two-person teams against each other in an overnight restaurant creation game.

Here's the fine print: One team member must be a chef, while the other member should be prepared to handle the front-of-the-house. The members must have a pre-existing relationship, so no fair cutting a deal with your favorite caterer. And the application guidelines include the words "charisma," "energy" and "charm."

Finally, there's some paperwork to be done beforehand: Applications and more rules can be found here.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
