Mean prank ruins my day

Alive photographer Dan Sohner and I were all set to rappel down the face of LeVeque Tower on April 1, when it was revealed that the event to be organized by Dimensional Entertainment was actually an April Fool's Day hoax...three weeks early.

The fake registration page was meant to stir up interest in the social-networking company's real events, which include board-game nights, happy hours and hikes. (Is it good marketing to admit that the coolest thing on your events calendar is a joke?)

Pretty good idea, though. Dan's an avid climber and has tons of top-quality rope. Maybe we can get something together...
