what to say?

So a friend of mine from college graduated from law school in May and took the bar in this, our home, state.

Bar results are out, and I don't see her name. So I think she didn't pass the bar.

What is the best response? We don't hang out a lot, but we have happy hour every month or so. Since I'm getting my information from a website, I don't feel comfortable just calling her up and saying, "Oh my God! You failed the bar! I'm so sorry, let's go get drunk!" But, likewise, calling her up and saying, "Hey, let's get a drink tomorrow!" seems phony, not owning up to why I'm calling her.

What would you prefer, dear reader(s)? The random call or the pity call? Or some version in between?
