So my boyfriend wants me to go with him to a friend's surprise party and an ex-girlfriend's wedding. The friend is heading off to Afghanistan. The ex-girlfriend invited a bunch of old friends/people she thinks she's still friends with..(there's an open bar, and my boyfriend and a few of his friends have decided this would be the only reason to go. Along with having a few laughs.)

The problem is... I haven't met any of these people, with the exception of 1 or maybe 2 if I'm lucky. Sounds like awkward times are ahead.

TQC, what can I do to make these situations not awkward? I'm not the most outgoing person, so the obvious "just make conversation with people" answer isn't all that helpful. :P I don't want to have to cling to my bf, but I'm not sure how well I'll do in these situations. What have you all done in awkward social situations when you don't know anyone?

If you don't care... favorite TV show?
