    So my 180mark is coming up so excited.Anyways now friends 2seperate families want to join us.Im worried they wont end up coming. And dont want to get charged or denied since I have to hold card.We r 4 they would make us 13.Dont want to be rude? Help please

    That is a sticky situation, Jessica.  And, unfortunately, there aren't any easy answers.  If it were me, I would volunteer to make the dining reservations for both of the other families that want to join you.  In doing so, I would let them know that a credit card is required to guarantee some of those reservations and insist that they use their own credit cards to book the reservations.  In booking the reservations, I would book for three separate parties.  The downside of doing so, of course, is that you won't be automatically seated together.  The upside, of course, is that you don't assume any financial risk for the other two families possibly backing out at the last minute and your family of four is guaranteed the ability to dine where you want.  If the other two families do indeed carry through with their plans to join you, you can always ask the hostess at the restaurant to seat you together, or as near to each other as possible.  I hope it works out for you!
