credit card mix-up: how does this work?

My friend and I met at a bar/restaurant on Saturday night. I got there early, and put my credit card down to start a tab. When the check arrived, my friend insisted on paying the bill and received and signed the credit card slip. We'd had a few glasses of wine each, and the bill with tip came to $77.

On Monday morning, I found a charge from that bar/restaurant on my account for 76.80. My friend's card was charged $77. How could our two cards end up being charged for 2 different amounts? There is no way we could have had $154 worth of wine; we would have died.

I've emailed the manager with no response yet, but it was only this morning. I was just curious if anyone could figure out how this could even happen....? Also, I'm worried that the minor difference in amounts will prevent a refund.
