Yeah, same, I know there are some restaurants that will charge you like $25 per person if you’re a no-show. But I still don’t understand why someone would ask for each guest’s credit card info in advance. Sending someone your credit card information is not without risk, so I also would ask what she needs it for. Maybe she’s trying to avoid awkwardness when the bill comes? But like, that’s what putting down one card and doing Venmo requests is for. I would just ask her for more explanation.
