Dude, get ready! We’re hosting our first ever Cult Classic Fest at Rams Head Live celebrating all you Achievers and general fans of The Big Lebowski. We have one awesome night planned… Check out what we’ve got lined up:
One notable fact is that the entire evening is hosted by Baltimore’s own Justin Schlegel from the 98 Rock morning show!
Justin’s job will include being the emcee for the costume contest (one male and one female winner), as well as hosting trivia. Prizes for each event include tickets to Rams Head Live & Pier Six Pavilion shows and Mustang Alley gift certificates!
Now, what kind of Big Lebowski event would this be without bowling?
We hope you score as many strikes as possible with our three different bowling-centric games, including human bowling! It’s as awesome as it sounds; you get to be your own bowling ball. Other games include virtual reality bowling and coconut bowling.
To make this night even sweeter, we’ve also got $5 White Russian and $3 Bud Light draft specials!
So there will be a costume contest and trivia hosted by Justin from the 98 Rock morning show, bowling games, and White Russians all with the movie soundtrack playing in the background, but to make the night complete, of course we’ll be showing the movie! Bring a chair and grab your dudes for a 9pm screening on a projector above the stage.
7:00pm Doors open and the games begin
7:30pm Costume contest registration
8:00pm Costume Contest – Male and Female division
9:00pm The Big Lebowski movie screening (bring a chair!)
The Big Lebowski is a 1998 crime comedy film written and directed by Joel and Ethan Coen. It stars Jeff Bridges as Jeff Lebowski, an unemployed Los Angeles slacker and avid bowler nicknamed “the Dude”. After a case of mistaken identity, the Dude is introduced to a millionaire also named Jeffrey Lebowski. When the millionaire Lebowski’s trophy wife is kidnapped, he commissions the Dude to deliver the ransom to secure her release. The plan goes awry when the Dude’s friend Walter Sobchak (John Goodman) schemes to keep the full ransom. Julianne Moore, Steve Buscemi, and John Turturro also star, with Philip Seymour Hoffman, David Huddleston, and Tara Reid appearing in supporting roles. There is some narration at the beginning and towards the end by a cowboy known only as “The Stranger”, played by Sam Elliott.
“Nobody calls me Lebowski. You got the wrong guy. I’m the Dude, man.”
