Can one day of bad pumping mess up my supply? I finally let myself sleep in for once. (maybe I shouldn’t have, but gosh did it feel nice!) and now I will be going to an outdoor party without any means to pump for a few hours.

Maybe not for everyone but in my experience yes. If at all possible buy a hand pump and sneak away whenever you can.
Depends on what stage you are at with pumping and if you exclusively pump or nurse and pump. But as an exclusive pumper myself, one bad day can definitely impact your supply. I always bring my pump with me when I leave the house and I know I will need to pump while I’m gone.
Maybe depends on how old your child is? Younger than 1 more than likely. Older maybe not too bad depending on how your supply normal is.
