Little bit of birthday equitte...

How do you politely tell someone you can't afford to eat at the resturant they've picked for their birthday dinner? I love him dearly, but I'm about to go back to school and start living on my own (in the next month), and I really can't afford to spend $50 on a steak dinner (at a place where you actually have to buy the vegetables seperately...), and then go out to the movies, and get him a birthday present. I could just not get his birthday present, but I've already found it and I'd much rather give it to him than eat a steak, if you know what I mean.

Is there a way to get out of this without making a fuss? I can't really skip the dinner, he's only invited four people, and I don't want to make him feel like he ought to change the resturant.
