Big Lebowski Party

sloped May 14, 2007 01:01 PM

Aside from White Russians, what else should (could) be served at a Big Lebowksi themed party? All creative answers welcome.

    Great ideas thus far... I would def go bowling alley finger foods, but check this "fest" out http://www.lebowskifest.com/news.asp

    Of course, you could also watch the movie and play the drinking game! http://www.ringthis.com/tv_drinking_g...

    Either require bowling shirts, or make cheap ones for your guests... or raid a thrift store :-)

      Unless you're stocked up on Creamora, there is no "aside from White Russians"!

              I seem to recall a conversation when the Dude, Donny, and Walter were talking about driving out to the "Valley" and stopping at an In-N-Out ... and then there's a later scene where they're driving down the road and appear to be eating In-N-Out burgers and drinking from the In-N-Out cups.

                    If it's not too gross....take a basic Mexican Wedding Cake type of cookie recipe, shape the cookies into little toes instead of balls, and paint a red toenail on each?

                      Marijuana of course!
                      Just kidding (ahem) but what a great idea for a party!!
                      Ever hear of the Lebowski Fest? You might get some ideas from their site:

                        We've hosted Lebowski parties... obviously the White Russians are a must; Sasparilla root beer, any bar munchies and bowling-alley food... I make cut out cookies, which are frosted with sayings like "Abide", "Nihlist", "Achiever", etc... wear bathrobes, or have everyone dress as their favorite character.

                        Have fun!!

                          maybe some pinkie-toe shaped hot dogs, cookies, or some other bite-sized delights.

                          What a great idea for a party!-- depending on where you're located, could you get a bunch of In n Out burgers, or make something resembling them? I hope you've got a rug that brings the room together ;)
