The people were very cool, and I made lots of new friends, all very Dude, the atmosphere was light and easy, fun with no problems. Everyone seemed to embody the Dude's take er easy attitude, fun and good company were the order of the day. Those guys know how to throw a party, from bar crawl parades to music and drink, this was an event any Dudeist could enjoy. I highly recommend attending one in your area, unless you like traveling as much as I, then pack the car, cause this is a worthy road trip.
Not just that, but I finally got to meet The Dudely Lama(Oliver Benjamin) co founder along with Dwayne Eutsey, of The Church of The Latter-Day Dude. That Dude is cool, we were fast friends and totally in sync. Duder is a wise and obviously caring person, it is wonderful that him and Dwayne have built a new bungalow for us spiritual wondering Dudes. Between Lebowskifest and Dudeism we have the beginnings of a Dude culture that can serve to chill out some of the damage all the reactionaries have wrought.
If you read this, I can't stress enough that any chill Dude would dig the Lebowskifest style. Rock on Lebowskists.
