To the Cocktail Party and NOT the Dinner...

fur621 | Jun 13, 201612:18 PM

Hi! I was thinking of hosting my birthday celebration in two parts: a cocktail party and then dinner. My building has a nice roof top and I thought it would be nice to do a roof top drinks from 5:30 to around 7 and then dinner at the restaurant across the street.

I would like my dinner to be more of an intimate occasion and would only like to invite maybe 10-12 people. Is there anyway of NOT making things awkward but subtly suggesting dinner for some but not others?

I thought about switching the two events around but my birthday falls on a Tuesday and I don't want the event to start too late.
