Of course the Moon revolves around the Earth!

Strictly speaking, Moon and Earth revolve around their common "center of mass", but this is somewhere inside the Earth.

The earth and moon both revolve around their common center of mass. Since the mass of the earth is about 82 times the mass of the moon, the moon is about 82 times as far from the common center of mass as the earth is. That puts the common center of mass something like 2,875 miles from the center of the earth ... which is inside the earth. If you could observe the pair from a stable position that's not gravitationally influenced by either one, you'd see the earth wobbling around a point inside of itself, and the moon revolving around the same point but a quarter million miles away from it, both once a month. Without some pretty precise measurements, you'd swear the moon was revolving around the earth. Is that answer good enough to settle the bar bet ?

Yes. Every month (actually about 29 days) the moon makes one orbit of the Earth. This causes the moon to go through one cycle of changes (Full, Last Quarter, New, First Quarter)
