I used to live out west, I met FI after moving back home on the East coast. I have a handful of good friends out there that I keep in touch with and visit annually. FI has never been or met any of them but next week we are flying out together for a vacation- we're going to a different area and then to that city only for 2 days. I'm really excited for him to meet one couple in particular because I'm really close to her and they are flying East for our wedding (keeping it small so I didn't really invite others from out there). So she had offered to host a BBQ at her house next Saturday so our 5-10 mutual friends can come hang out, swim in her pool and I can see everyone without being like stuffed into a restaurant table. I offered to buy all the food and was really excited about it.
Last night, her friends that I don't know were all tagging her on facebook as going to a Beer Festival that entire day and she did indeed comment on it "Can't wait, it will be better than last year!" Sooooo she apparently forgot that's the day I'm coming. I'm kinda pissed but I don't exactly know how to bring it up to her. We're only in her city Friday night- Sunday morning and it's the only chance for them and FI to meet before the wedding, not to mention I just love her and want to spend time with her (otherwise I would have skipped even going to that city). But I don't want to force them to begrudgingly stay home and host us if they'd rather be at the festival? (FI and I do not drink so us going to the festival is not an option, just not our cup of tea at all). What do I do?
