nerds achievers descended upon Lucky Strike Lanes over on 12th Avenue and 42nd Street last night for the 4th NYC Lebowski Fest. The extravaganza, which came on the heels of Saturday night's sold-out concert and The Big Lebowski screening at Irving Plaza, featured a costume contest, profligate consumption of White Russians, amateurish bowling, and incessant shouts of "Over the line!" Sort of a Star Trek convention for party people, the Lebowski Fest has become an international phenomenon since its humble beginnings in Louisville in 2002, when Will Russell and his pal Scott Shuffitt drew a spontaneous crowd of "Lebowski" quoters at a tattoo convention. Here's our interview with Russell from last week, and here's The F%#king Short Version of The Big Lebowski. Well, enjoy!
