Red face Invitation Wording Help Needed!

I need a way to send an invitation to a group of people for a retirement get-together, but the wording needs to be such that it is clear that it is for a pay-your-own-way dinner/drinks, etc. Can this be tactfully and eloquently done?

TIA!!!

Joan's wording works for me.

Or maybe you could say something like:
Please join us for dinner at XYZ
(Please be prepared: your dinner will run in the $8-12 range.)

?? I don't know... that's off the top of my head. Is it informal enough that you could include a sample menu?

hahahahahah--prob feels like 65 years! I'll come to that one too, but it just can't be for his SCS retirement! Thanks for the idea.
