Lebowski Fest LA Wrap-Up
With the Wiltern Theater marquee illuminating the Los Angeles night, the curtain went up on Lebowski Fest 2009. The Dudely Lama, founder of the officially registered religion ‘Dude-ism’ blessed the event by leading the crowd in the Dude-ist Prayer.
Among the other highlights were the Ralph’s check-out girl (Robin Jones) re-enacting her indolent gum-chewing scene, Liam O’Brien (Jim Hoosier) re-enacting his post-strike belly shake, Da Fino (Jon Polito) doing the sleazy P.I. bit as only he can, and Woo (Phillip Moon) defiling a perfectly good carpet. Over 1,500 Achievers watched the movie on the giant screen and the night was complete.
Then it was on to the Cal Bowl for a sold out night of bowling and what-have-you.

We’re looking forward to a far out year and hope to see you at a Lebowski Fest. Thanks for all the support.
