Hi Kathryn a belated happy birthday from me.  Well done on not gambling in a very tempting situation.  I hope that you havve learnt from this andif the situation repesated then you would veto the venue and go somewhere else.  Apart from anything else as you have found it stopped you from enjoying the occasion fully anyway.
If your friend is really a friend then they will be more than happy to go elsewhere.  Especially asd they know of the situation.
I hope you enjoyed the rest of your birthday.
