The Party Vanishes
April 1, 2007 — 4:16 am

Now that I know where I’ll be in early May, I thought I’d get my travel plans finalized to attend Cato’s 30th anniversary dinner. I attended the 20th in 1997, when I was an intern there, and the 25th in 2002 while I worked at U.S. Term Limits, so I’ve always planned to make my way back to DC for the 30th, no matter where I was. I’ve waffled slightly, thinking about airfare and tux rental, not to mention the registration fee (these dinners are fundraisers, after all). But I’ve gotta go. It’s fun, the place will be crawling with people I know (if only slightly) and would like to see again, and, well, it’s become a tradition.

So I stopped by Cato’s events page to confirm the date . . . and the event isn’t there! No reference anywhere on Cato’s site, as far as I can tell. This is odd, because in early February I confirmed the date as May 9th, by consulting Cato’s events page when I was letting my pal James know I’d probably be coming to town.

So what’s the deal? Did Cato just cancel the event and eliminate all traces that it once existed on their calendar? Is it being moved to another date? Is my quintannual tradition destined for the dustbin of history? It can’t be an April Fool’s joke.
