If you've ever wanted to break into show business, this is your lucky day.
According to Ryan Smith, managing director at Rusty Pelican, the restaurant will film a mock wedding ceremony, complete with a bride and groom (models have already been hired to play the loving couple, so don't arrive in a white gown or tuxedo). About 75 people are needed to portray wedding guests, as well as hang by the bar and dine. The shoot is scheduled for Thursday, November 20, from 3:30 to 8 p.m., and you're asked to dress "upscale casual" for the occasion (men in slacks and collared shirts or jackets, ladies in dresses). While you're waiting, you'll be served the works -- lobster, filet mignon, cocktails. As Smith puts it: "I want people to eat free food and have free cocktails."
On Friday, November 21, Whiskey Joe's will take its turn in the spotlight. From 3:30 to 8 p.m., cameras will capture a fun, high-spirited evening at the waterfront bar. Ryan says, "There will be beer, chicken wings, and all kinds of food. We'll have games, beer pong, and live music. We want do show people having a great time." The dress code is casual, although it's requested you don't wear T-shirts with large logos.

You'll also be asked to sign a waiver, and, naturally, you should be OK with being filmed.
