THE DUDE DAY: THE BIG LEBOWSKI
The Day of the Dude is celebrated on March 6 every year to commemorate the North American release of the movie The Big Lebowski in 1998. It’s been a while since we’ve last mellowed out with his Dudeness or El Duderino, if you’re not into the whole brevity thing, so it’s time to put on a bathrobe, pour yourself a White Russian (or order one at our bar) and join us to celebrate this iconic Coen Bros. classic.
The plot of this Raymond Chandler-esque comedy crime caper from the Coen Brothers (Joel Coen and Ethan Coen) pivots around a case of mistaken identity complicated by extortion, double-crosses, deception, embezzlement, sex, pot, and gallons of White Russians (made with fresh cream, please). In 1991, unemployed ’60s refugee Jeff “The Dude” Lebowski (Jeff Bridges) grooves into his laid-back Los Angeles lifestyle.
