Social Hour: Open Forum on Reopening


Restaurants in 34 states are in various stages of reopening their dine-in service after lockdown due to the coronavirus, and they’re learning a lot as their cities and states relax lockdown restrictions on businesses.

During this week’s Social Hour virtual roundtable, event managers in Tennesee and Texas shared their experiences and challenges with reopening, including floor plans that meet capacity guidelines, how to accommodate wedding parties, cleaning and safety procedures, and booking future events when you’re unsure what restrictions will be lifted for the rest of the year.
