  Old  PHP Calendar Displaying Wrong Date

At this point I have coding goggles and am certain I must be missing something dumb.. My calendar is displaying that the first day of March was on a Wednesday, however it wasn't, it was on a Tuesday. Any ideas on what could be causing this? ( I already verified that the servers timezone was set correct )

PHP Code:
 $cal_date  time(); 
$cal_day   date('d'$cal_date); 
$cal_month date('n'$cal_date); 
$cal_year  date('Y'$cal_date); 
$first_day mktime(000$cal_month1$cal_year); 
$title     date('F'$first_day); 
$cal_day_of_week date('D'$fist_day); 
Basically "$cal_day_of_week" is returning as "Wed" when it should return as "Tue".
