After a rough year, your best friend decides to start her next one with a bang by throwing a somewhat elaborate birthday party. Before the shindig, she wants to get together with her closest girlfriends for dinner. Of course you’re all too happy to make her day special, and tell her you’re in for dinner.
It ends up being a group of about 15, which is pretty big for a group dinner, so you’re shocked when she chooses one of the nicest restaurants around — a three course meal goes for $70 not including drinks! None of you are flat broke, but for a group dinner this just seems completely over the top. You weren't planning on spending that much on her, but if you mention something you know she'll be terribly upset — she’s the bridezilla of birthday girls. So ladies, how would you handle this?
