I do occasionally go out with just one card, especially if I'm heading out for a drink and wouldn't want to lose a wallet full of cards (not that I normally get that inebriated... ). I would usually have some cash with me though, and would be meeting someone (or with the OH) so unlikely to be left high and dry.
