    Hi all,

    I am asking a friend that she is going to pay for the Bowling as a treat/party.

    IS this correct : Bowling's on you and i will pay for the dinner.

    It sounds natural: Naturally, you'd end it with a question mark (or a tone indicating a question). The question is also, however, direct and casual, so it would be fitting to ask this question of someone who is a close friend or with whom you are more familiar.

    (Please remember to use correct grammar, punctuation, and capitalization.)

    To a friend in the right circumstances, you could say that. I assume this is an offer, i.e. the dinner is more expensive than the bowling ... ? ;)

    Pardon my intrusion everyone. I just want to know whether this sentence is correct or not - I don't know why but it sounds a bit awkward to me.

    It is awkward, Fictional, but this is not really the topic of the thread.
