Not About Food 11

Another one of those split the check issues

Tonight we are going to dinner with another couple to a very nice place where the tab (with wine, etc.) will probably be $500 or so. We have a $200 gift certificate which was a birthday gift from our daughter to my husband. Most likely we will apply the gift certificate to the tab and split the remaining balance 50/50 but while thinking about it I wondered if it would be considered rude to split the total bill and then apply the $200 to our half?
