I’m a little chagrined that I just heard about this event, 2 days after it occurred.
“Lebowski Fest is a celebration of all things related to the 1998 Coen brothers cult comedy, “The Big Lebowski.” Fans of the film (aka “Achievers”) come from far and wide to drink white Russians, throw some rocks and party with an array of Dudes, Walters and Maudes (not to mention a nihilist or two). It’s a two-day party that typically opens with live performances and screening of the film the first night and concludes with a raucous bowling party the following night.”
Did you go? I’d love to hear any reports about it!
If you’re in Los Angeles, there’s a Lebowski Festival taking place there on September 23-24.
Now, on to something I must give you a heads-up about:
This weekend (August 20-21), on New York City’s Governor’s Island, The Jazz-Age Lawn Party.
Not to be missed!
They held a jazz-age party earlier this summer, which I attended and LOVED. Here’s my report about it. The costumes are fantastic, the music is fantastic, the FREE ferry ride to the island is fantastic. You can take a picnic, or purchase food there.
If the weather is decent, I say “Get Ye To Governor’s Island This Weekend!”
If you purchase tickets in advance here, it’s just $7.00 per person. On the island on Saturday or Sunday, tickets are $10.00 per person. (Kids under 12 are admitted for free.)
