15 Years, Man

Shut the hell up, Donnie: You're going to Lebowski Fest


We'll get right to the point: It’s the fifteen-year anniversary of The Big Lebowski.

Which means you finally have no excuse to not attend Lebowski Fest LA.

Celebrate the way this durned comedy keeps perpetuatin’ itself, and spend next Friday night with esteemed guest stars Woo the Carpet Pisser and the Sheriff of Malibu. Arrive at 8p to take photos, get autographs, and meet the man who inspired Walter.

Just don’t get cute and try to give Robin Jones (Ralph’s Girl) a check for $0.69 or Lu Elrod (Family Restaurant Waitress) a toe.

That aggression will not stand, man.

Just sip your Caucasian while The Kyle Gass Band (he's one half of Tenacious D) brings good-time rock and roll.

By the time the 35mm screening starts, you’ll be in the mood to avenge lost rugs. Just bring your A-game, as The Achievers at this fest can quote more of the dialogue than at any Rocky Horror Picture Show.

At Saturday's bowling party, Jim Hoosier (Liam) will demonstrate how to shine your balls and Barry Asher, the film’s bowling advisor, will be on hand to help you roll your way into the semis. (Pro tip: your score will improve if you're in costume.)

Weekend passes are sold out, but you and your lady friend can still buy individual tickets.
