What is a social table?

A social table is an outdoor dining option that creates a place for people to gather in Downtown Greensboro.  All tables can be reserved in advance as a SEAT for 1, TABLE for 8, or SECTION for 48.  You can select a reservation time that suits your Homecoming schedule the best.  The social table reserved seating option guarantees a seat for you and friends for brunch, lunch and/or dinner!  Tables will be set for you in advance, and ready when you arrive.  This eliminates the wait for seating in traditionally packed out restaurants, and provides an alternative to on-campus tailgating.  

What is included in a social table reservation?
Social tables reservations start at $20 per person, $120 per table, and $720 per group.  One social table has seating for up to 8 people.  Attendees may reserve up to 5 tables in Blocks 1, 2 and 3.  


Can my organization or group reserve a section?

Yes, Aggies on Elm is the perfect place for an impromptu reunion with former classmates and long time friends in an outdoor setting.  A group section is available for small parties of 48 people or more.  Maximum capacity in the group section is 240 people. 


Will tables will be available for reservation on Homecoming Day?

Day-of reservations are not guaranteed.  All guests are encouraged to reserve a table by October 30th to ensure seating.  Any seats available on Homecoming day will be posted on the website, and will be sold as SINGLE SEAT tickets, which means you and your party may be seated with people you do not know.  This is a great opportunity to network for some, and an undesirable option for others.  Advance reservations are highly encouraged.

What is the general schedule for social table reservations?

Social tables are available for reservations in selected time blocks with the following schedule: 

Brunch: 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM

Game Time: 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM

Early Dinner: 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM

What should I bring?  Is Food included in the social table price? 

No, food is not included in the reservation ticket price.  However, an optional, pre-order brunch will be made available as an add-on for those with 10:00am reservations. For all time slots, we encourage you to grab a to-go meal from a Downtown restaurant (prior to arrival), and enjoy it with friends at your reserved Social Table

Can my food be delivered by a delivery service?

Yes, however, keep in mind that Elm Street will be closed to driving traffic between Market Street and Smothers Place.  Consider the closest accessible location when placing your order.
