Should I be upset my boyfriend isn't coming to my birthday dinner/ night out?

So my actual birthday is Monday (the 18th) but I decided to do something in Friday (15th) because my boyfriend is going back to college on Monday plus my friends will be either gone or working. I ended up changing it to Saturday (16th) because 2 of my friends have to work Friday and wouldn't be able to make it. My boyfriend texted me asking if he could take me to dinner the 15th because he doesn't want to go to dinner with the two friends because one is annoying and one is ghetto. To be fair they are, but they're not intolerable. He said he'd go if I wanted him to and if not he was probably going to hang out with his guy friends while I went out and I said no it's fine and I'm not going to force him be around people he doesn't want to be around. A mutual friend going to the event said he should just suck it up and go bc it's my bday/anniversary & it's only a few hours and that it sounds like an excuse to hang with his friends.
I don't know how to feel because Monday is also our 1 year anniversary. Should I be mad that he doesn't want to enjoy my bday with my and my friends? Or give him credit for at least wanting to spend time with me separately? Or could he just be making excuses?
