So, my husbands siblings (and spouses) all decided to to take their parents out for dinner for their anniversary. We're dining at a relatively nice restaurant and are splitting the bill evenly between four couples. Is it fair for my BIL to demand that $260 be paid to him two days before the actual dinner. We're ordering off the menu and the only other expense is a cake being picked up at a bakery. We're also being asked to order cocktails at the bar and bring a bottle of wine. Corkage is waived. Is this fair when some people may prefer to put on a debit or credit card and just have the server split four ways? Am I out of line for thinking his demands aren't exactly classy?
