My friend Stacey just turned 23 and invited a bunch of her friends to go out to dinner with her. Sadly, Stacey is known for being a bit outragious so when she said a "handful of her closet friends", she meant more than a dozen people. She had made the resturant reservations weeks in advance and had been told her and her party would get a private room in the back. She was so thrilled.
Now, we were told ahead of time this resturant was upscale and a bit pricey, so I prepared for that. I brought thirty dollars with me, which I knew would be enough for a glass of wine and an entree. I'm still in college and incredibly broke, but this meant a lot to my friend, so I got dressed up and went.
