I did not pay, but a business partner took a total of four of us out last week for steaks, drinks and dessert.

inch and a half thick Porterhouse, Various drinks, New York Cheesecake and appetizers.

The bill - for 4 - 886 before the tip. 243 per person.

Yikes. Glad I didn't pay.

AWA, you Republicans know how to live. Best I can do is $400 with tip in Seattle. Only inlcuded a beer or two. It's hard in Kansas to spend that much except maybe in KC. Chicken fried steak just doesn't cost that much.

Technically the most expensive meal I've had was $10,000 per person, but that was a political fundraiser.

I took the Mrs. out for Valentine's Day a few years ago and the bill, after throwing a bottle of Dom Perignon on there, came out to about $1,100 at the end of the night, so $550 per person.

Dinner for 2, 12 oz of Kobe for each of us, 1 glass of wine, and sides of mashed sweet potato was $500 with tip, so that was $250 each.

I worked for a company that partnered with a big Japanese company. When we hit a milestone on the project, some of our Japanese colleagues were there and took everyone out to this place (timesunion.com). There were about 30 people, Chateaubriands for every 2 people, appetizers and desserts for everyone, and lots of drinks. This bill broke 5 figures. I don't know the exact amount, but that's at least $333 per person.

Aaaaaaaaand... it wasn't really all that good. Except the drinks.

Wow, I feel like a cheapskate.

My most expensive meal was about $125 for the both of us, for a nice candlelit Valentines Dinner...but the gal and I both agreed afterward that the food was shit. :(

I once ate dinner at an award banquet that, rumor has it, cost the foundation behind the award upwards of $400 per head. It was at some French restaurant in Chicago that I don't recall the name of right now.

The guys who paid were a couple of SERIOUS union Democrats. I almost blew my chance of going by intimating that Unions were kind of passe and Obama was a mope. But I fixed their problem

My second highest meal? Can't be over 60 or so.

On someone else's tab, 8 of us spent about $3600 at a sushi bar.

On my tab, my wife and I dropped about $140 at a different sushi bar.

When my friend won that free personal dinner at Morimoto's place it had to have cost a ton. We had Waygu beef, fugu, maybe eleven courses in all and each one served with a special drink some of which were crazy expensive as well. Had to be well over $400 a person if I'm guessing. Still have the menu with his autograph.

I don't know if I've ever had a meal that would average out to $100 per person or better. The closest I can think of was a seven-course dinner for I attended for a work function. There seven different wines, one of which was all rare and stuff. I have no idea what the cost was per person, but I didn't drink the wine (though I tried the especially fancy one, and yeah, it was nice) so I didn't get the full value of the meal anwyay.

Three months after one of my papers launched, one of the highers-up took the whole office out for dinner and drinks. Five people rang up somewhere north of $500.

My wife and I had a five-course meal at Teatro ZinZanni on the San Francisco wharf a couple of months ago, although of course part of what you're paying for there is the performance. It's normally $185, I think, but we didn't actually pay anything, as our friend who works there comped us in.

I think my family of five cracked $65 at Applebee's last week.
