I am having a surprise 40th dinner for my husbands birthday at his favorite dinner place. I got a back room to fit everyone and I am letting guests know that I am having an Open bar from 6pm-7:30pm (we won't arrive til 6:30pm) But I am not paying for their dinners, just paying for drinks/alcohol. Is there a proper way to convey this information to my guests?? Most are family with a few friends.
