well, "exchanging dinner invitations" sounds more concise

another try:

试译:

treat your friends or family to a meal.
       
    4        treat   treats   treating   treated  
        If you treat someone to something special which they will enjoy, you buy it or arrange it for them.
            She was always treating him to ice cream.
            Tomorrow I'll treat myself to a day's gardening.
            If you want to treat yourself, the Malta Hilton offers high international standards.
        VB


"treat" is somewhat unspecific
