"Like, that's just your opinion": The Big Lebowski Festival is coming to Seattle

"Break out the White Russians; 'Big Lebowski' fest comes to Seattle", starting tomorrow. I've always loved the movie but I can't say that I truly understood it until I spent a week in L.A. a few years ago. In that setting, the life of the Dude seems perfectly plausible. And also the intersection of the Dude with strange figures from the L.A. power structure. They're showing it at Fremont Outdoor Cinema. but maybe I'll just go to a bar and order White Russians. After being in the classic Barney's Beanery (burrito shop) in West Hollywood I could completely understand how a person could just sort of vegetate in L.A. in a sort of narcotic/alcoholic haze. It's a good restaurant, but extremely possessed of Dude-itude as well.
