Lebowski Fest in Austin

Four years after its Louisville, KY founding, Lebowski Fest is coming to Austin on May 19-20.

A special screening of The Big Lebowski will take place May 19th at Maggie Mae's and the "main event" happens May 20th at Highland Lanes. There will be bowling, trivia, look-a-like contests, copious caucasians and what-have-you. Although a townie would've picked Dart Bowl instead of Highland Lanes for the fries and enchiladas, it still sounds like a real swinging deal.

Here's an interview with Lebowski Fest founders Will Russell and Scott Shuffitt from PopMatters about how it all got started.
