Dinner and Cocktails for Birthday in Calgary?

I am attempting to plan a fun and fancy party for my 24th birthday the first week of June (Saturday night). I have been reading a ton of old posts on this board in order to determine both a restaurant and a lounge to go to....but I am still unsure. The night will be fairly expensive for all, as we are doing the spa, getting a limo, doing dinner, cocktails at a lounge, and who know's what else - so therefore I am trying to find locations that have the balance of good ambiance and reasonable prices. I'm pretty sure everyone will be glam, with everyone in dresses etc.

The plan is for about 8 girls to go to dinner.. and then we will meet up with everyone else and do cocktails/drinks/dancing. In the end, we will probably have a group of 20. I am hoping to make reservations at both locations we go to.

I am rather picky for a meal, in the sense that I'm looking for under $20/entree... Everyone does not have high standards and many are students/new grads, so we don't want to break the bank. I am maybe thinking Italian or Vietnamese, but the only thing that is ruled out is sushi. No one is a huge-meat eater and we do have a vegetarian in the group. The location doesn't particular matter as we will have the limo to take us whereever.

I'm hoping that my lounge choices won't be limited to Fuel and Met Grill... ? I've never been to Mercury... but do consider that as an option.

If anyone has any ideas for dinner, cocktails, or both... I could definitely use them!
