Luncheon Information

Doors open at 10:30 a.m.  - If you do not wish to stand in line before doors open, we strongly encourage you to either sit in your car until the line dissipates or to plan to arrive after 11 a.m.

Luncheon Fee includes - In addition to our entertaining program and fun contests, you will receive lunch entree from either the Reno's Menu OR the "DAILY Specials" menu with a non-alcoholic beverage. The fee includes tax & a 20% tip for the entree & beverage.


For an additional cost, you may order appetizers, desserts, alcoholic beverages, or premium items ("Triple Play" or "20 piece Wing platter"). If you order anything in addition to your luncheon meal, you will be responsible for paying the wait staff person for those items and you are expected to tip accordingly for those extras. 

Special Dietary Meal Requests - Reno's menu offers several options (Gluten Free, Vegan/Vegetarian, low carb, etc.). Please communicate any requirements to your wait staff person.

No "Outside" food or beverages - Bringing outside food or drinks into Reno's will result in expulsion from the event.


Please Be Patient - On behalf of Reno's staff, we ask that all attendees be patient while waiting for your meal or any other request.  It is no secret that the entire restaurant industry is struggling with staffing issues and Reno's is no exception.  During these trying times, it is our hope that our club will above by exhibiting kindness & patience.  

"Savings" Seats - Each attendee can save one seat for someone who will be arriving after them by placing a jacket or a purse on the seat or otherwise indicating that it is being saved (tilting chairs is NOT allowed). If the room starts to fill up, we will seat people in saved seats.


Reserved Seats - You may reserve a seat by paying the luncheon fee for a person who has not yet arrived. A "SEAT RESERVED" table tents will be provided for you to place in front of the seat next to the person who pre-paid. We will allow Reserved Seats to remain open through the end of the luncheon if the person does not arrive, but NO REFUNDS will be issued for prepaid luncheon fees, even if the person doesn't attend.

Memberships - Supporters of Spartan Football can become a member by registering online, by mail, or at any of our luncheon events. 

COVID-19 Guidance

Keep your distance - Attendees are asked to refrain from approaching the front table, riser, or guests (coaches, staff, or other speakers) at all times. This is all unfortunate but for the time being, we simply cannot afford to be responsible for a coach, player, or staff member missing (or potentially forfeiting) a game.

If you are feeling ill or exhibiting any of the usual COVID symptoms, we kindly request that you stay at home.


If you have not received any of the COVID vaccines, you are encouraged to wear a face mask until your beverage or meal has been delivered to your table.  This protocol is not intended to be a political statement, it is meant to protect attendees at our events. 


If you or anyone you have been in direct contact with later tests positive for COVID, we ask that you immediately notify the Club via email at mugman026@aol.com. The Club reserves the right to share information necessary for contact tracing which may include individual names.


While attending luncheons , participants are encouraged to practice hand hygiene consistent with CDC guidelines, including “social distancing” and wearing face coverings to reduce the risks of exposure to COVID-19. COVID-19 is extremely contagious and is spread mainly from person-to-person contact. Downtown Coaches Club cannot guarantee that participants, volunteers, or others in attendance will not become infected with COVID-19. Attendence is at your own risk and by attending you are deemed to accept the risk and waive liability of the Downtown Coaches Club.
