    The restaurant is celebrating its anniversary.

    The restaurant is celebrating its anniversary. From now on till the end of this year, we don't have to give tip when we have buffet dinner there from 5:50 to 9:00, from Monday to Thursday.


    Hi,
    I try to say the above to an American pastor, who is very kind and enthusiastic, because I'd like to treat him and his family an all-you-can-eat buffet before this coming Christmas. If there is anything wrong, feel free to let me know. Thanks.

    ***** NOT A TEACHER *****

    I would be more comfortable adding a "to": I'd like to treat him and his family to an all-you-can-eat buffet before this coming Christmas."
