Affordable special occasion dinner
$125pp including how many drinks? Just one or more than that? Drinking habits vary widely and cocktails are now like $13-15 in lots of places... Or did you mean wine, which can also blow your budget?
Also does this $125pp ALSO include tax and tip?
$125pp minus tax and tip is about $96pp, minus two cocktails is only $70pp. Not exactly a lot to spend on something "great, special."
Can you give a per person cost for just food?
