Welcome to Social! As a kid growing up we always had big family dinners. I remember the feeling of getting together with people I loved to enjoy a great meal. I wanted to create Social for the community that was so good to me through my football days at Toledo and the NFL. This is my chance to offer great food to the greatest people. I cherish the opportunity to walk around and meet tables of families, friends and couples connecting over a meal. Thank you for making Social a success and for all of the support Ohio!
