Restaurateurs Mike Kelly, Randy Rayburn To Settle Boxing Bet in the Kitchen

Tomorrow night, May 16, Sunset Grill owner Randy Rayburn will be collecting on a special bet he made with Jimmy Kelly's owner Mike Kelly. Thanks to the results of a boxing match held last month with fighters representing each restaurant, Kelly will spend the day cooking in the Sunset Grill kitchen. You know there has to be a backstory behind this.

The results were determined at Fight Night 2012 on April 25 –- an evening of amateur boxing hosted by The Boxing Resource Center and Advance Financial to benefit Not Alone, a program that provides programs, resources and services to veterans and families affected by combat stress and PTSD through a confidential and anonymous community.

During Fight Night, local organizations, including the two restaurants, sponsored boxers who went head to head representing them during a series of bouts. After a close three-round bout between the two young boxers, the fighter representing Sunset Grill came out victorious, so Mike has to tie on the apron strings and cook.

The bet was made in a spirit of good-natured fun to benefit a great cause, so you might consider dropping by Sunset Grill tomorrow to see how Mike is holding up. I'm sure Randy will be on hand to see how deep in the weeds Mike ends up. Let's just hope Gordon Ramsey isn't in town.
