Planning my birthday party

I have my group of single girlfriends and coincidentally a lot of us have summer birthdays so we have been getting together and going out for dinner and usually dancing for everyone's BD. Well mine is on 8/12 and I decided I wanted to go to this restaurant that's on the waterfront--on Sunday afternoons they have an oldies band outdoors and dancing. So last night I was at dance class and also invited 2 of the guys--one of them is "M,"--I have known him for about 3 yrs and used to have a crush on him, but after I figured out that was going nowhere, I really got over it, although we are still friends. He said he would come, but 1) he works at a boat repair place and is usually very busy in the summer and 2) he often says he will go to things (I think just cause he doesnt' want to say no to people and then doesn't show up, so you never can really count on him.
Then there is the other guy "J." When we were out 2 weeks ago on Sat.,for another friend's BD, he just happened to be in the same place so he ended up hanging out with us and dancing. I was talking about him with a couple of friends and I thought one friend might be interested in him but she said no and told me to go for it with him. I am not really that physically attracted to him though--he is older than me (although I don't know how old, but I'm guesssing 10 yrs older) and he's in good physical shape but he is not good looking, so I don't know. However, he is a nice guy so I won't rule him out. Not to mention that I think he is quite well off, so I wouldn't mind getting taken out to dinner--he owns a restaurant, an antique store and some real estate--that's what he considers being "retired."
So I know that whether the guys come or not, we will still have a good time--usually we just have so many more women. At one friend's BD dinner (which I thought was supposed to be a girl's night out) the BD girl invited her BF--so it was like 10 women and one BF--he didn't seem to mind though.
