Etiquette is hard, man

Tonight I'm going to a 40th b-day/"congrats on your new job" party. The couple throwing it (in honor of the birthday boy/new job holder) have rented out a restaurant and will be providing a buffet of food and an open bar. Ordinarily when I go to restaurant celebrations, I consider my presence and paying for my own tab to be gift enough.

But...since this is a catered party, I feel like I should bring some sort of host gift. A nice bottle of wine seems appropriate, but I don't know much about wine, and I feel like a bunch of other people will do this too.

What do I dooooo? Am I wrong in thinking that it's probably semi-expected for me to bring something?
