I can tell that many of you posters have not had much experience with large groups and single bills at a restaurant. Even in the extraordinary chance that each party had the same number of drinks, the same meals, etc., there's always a few that leave the table without paying, or short pay or don't tip . whatever.

What this always means is that those at the table last have to pony up the balance. And the pony up amount is always a larger amount of cash than anyone would have imagined.

Hey, like Ernie said, some will have the $11 meal, some will have the $20 meal, some will have one Club Soda and some will drink 12 drinks . .who is going to figure out who pays what?

Better that you guys ask for separate bills in your choice groups or on an individual basis. I'm sure the restaurant staff would prefer differently but hey . . .in the end, their tips will be larger, so if they whine, just make sure they are told that.

Have fun you gang.

Maybe it could be done groups to make it easier, you could break it down individually for bills by table.

So the wait staff would have a few bills to deal with, and sorting out who owes what is easier for a group of 6 than 30

Here's the deal.
The Blue Water wanted me to pick from a banquet menu. I aksed if we could just order off of the menu, becuase I had no clue what everyone would want. Some menus had Key Lime Pie, some didn't. Some had seafood and pork, others chicken and lobster dishes.
So let's just all meet there at 6ish for dinner at 7.
We will hash out the details of payment there, but it has to be EASY for the staff.
Whoever tries to stiff us on the bill will go for a free skydive, without a parachute...but I really don't see it being a problem!
See you guys there!!!!!!

Geez Reaper, I hope you have plenty of experience herding cats. You're going to need it!

I've already told you more than I know.
