Some of you may still not be privy to the fact that there’s a huge Lebowskifest tour rolling its way across the USA. Rev. Hugh Slesinger gives a shout out to all good Dudes of the world to try to make it to at least one of the upcoming dates. It’s going to be looked back upon like this generation’s Woodstock — the original uncompromised first draft, that is.
