This Holiday Season Make a Reservation and Bring Lots of Patience
According to The National Restaurant Association, an estimated 14 million Americans will visit a restaurant for a Thanksgiving meal this year, and an additional 16 million will use restaurant takeout to supplement a meal at their own or someone else’s home. In addition, 32 million Americans are expected to dine out while shopping on Black Friday, according to new research by the Association.

So bring your Visa and channel some patience, because you are not the only family dining out.
