Viking helmets, music, and bowling at Lebowski Fest 2013


Listen up: this email concerns your bathrobe.

You might want to run it through the wash. Maybe even go out and get it dry cleaned. Chances are good you’ll be showing it off.

Because bathrobes are standard attire at this year's Lebowski Fest. Also known as the world’s premiere celebration of white Russians, bowling, and all things Big Lebowski, if you’re not into the whole brevity thing.
The two-night festivities start Friday, taking the Mezzanine by storm with performances by the Extra Action Marching Band and DJ/MC duo Millionaires Using Coupons. And of course following that will be a spirited (did somebody say audience participation?) screening of the Coen Brothers’ cult classic that started the movement.

White Russians will flow. Rugs may or may not be rendered unusable. Some Creedence tapes may even make an appearance.
Sleep it off before heading to Saturday night's bowling party in Daly City. Yes, the Jesus will be in attendance. Lots of them. Along with plenty of Donnies and The Dudes. Bowl against them, test your trivia skills; whatever you do, bring your A-game.
Just don’t step over the line when your turn comes around.
