Things are starting to pull together for this years PGH ABIDES event. Mike Budai has just completed this years T shirt and Commonwealth Press will have shirts available. You can check their site for ordering info.

So we decided that Bayardstown Social Club is going to play host to this years festivities. Finding a larger venue in the steel city isn’t as easy as one might imagine. We are working on it though.

PGH ABIDES SEPTEMBER 2014 : A CELEBRATION OF ALL THINGS DUDE

Friday Sept 26 @ Bayardstown Social Club

PGH ABIDES 2014
PGH ABIDES : A CELEBRATION OF ALL THINGS DUDE
This probably hadn’t occurred to you Dude, but last year the first PGH ABIDES event happened and attracted an overwhelming response from Dudists all across the city. You’re not dealing w/ morons here. We had Yinz and Aht Burgers, Ringer Toss, Costume Contest, Bands performing songs from the dudes tape deck and even some homework, Social Studies of course. I know what you are thinking, far out man, far out. But thats just it, our thinking about this whole thing became very obtuse. So we got to thinking why we should settle for a measly little film when we can plan an entire evening of festivities celebrating all things DUDE.

Has the whole world gone crazy. Are we the only ones who give a s$1t about the rules? If you are gonna celebrate the Big Lebowski you need Bands, Beers, Burgers, Laughs, Synth Pop, CCR, and of course the carpet. PGH ABIDEs really ties the room together.

$10 admission
5pm-midnight
music from the Dude’s Tapedeck by Charlie Hustle and the Grifters plus special guests.
Lomito Truck’s Yinz N Aht Burgers
Uncle Charlies Sausages
Franktuary serving Rock Bottom Brews and White Russians

Just so yinz aren’t confused: TICKETS WILL BE AVAILABLE at the door on a first-come, first-serve basis until we reach capacity. Yes, presales are sold out. We recommend arriving early, because you get a bunch of bonuses (in addition to actually getting in). First 50 people get a complimentary beer ticket just because, and from 5-6, if you arrive in costume, we will give you a complimentary beer ticket. Early arrivals & presale ticket holders are guaranteed commemorative toe keychains fabricated by Tommy Bones and his lovely girlfriend, who gave up her toe. Legacy Printing also hooked up another surprise that will be handed out at the door.

And one more VERY IMPORTANT thing: THE BAR IS CASH ONLY.

BUY A SHIRT!

BUY TIX

 

By this time next Friday, Bayardstown Social Club will be transformed into a celebration of all things Lebowski. While yinz are watching the Steelers game on Sunday, we will be very unDude-like in our multitasking, as we finish up the pub quiz questions, make cornhole bean bags, finalize our costumes, blow on some freshly-painted toenails and, of course, drink some beers.

THINGS TO REMEMBER:

We have a rain location at Artists Image Resource (AIR). So rain or shine, we are doing this thing.

T-Shirts from Commonwealth Press are limited-run. Get yours here: http://compressmerch.com/products/pittsburgh-abides
or at the event.

This is a BYOC (bring your own chair) event. While some seating exists, we suggest you bring your own chair if you think you want to sit.

We are encouraging costumes. Our official costume contest judges have been chosen and notified of their responsibilities. As a BONUS, if you arrive in costume from 5-6 pm, you will receive a ticket for a free beer. That’s right, the whole world’s gone crazy and if you are one of the first 50 people in the door AND you are wearing a costume, you can get two complimentary beers.

THE ITINERARY: It’s a great plan, fucking ingenious

5 pm DOORS w/ free beer tickets going to first 50 people and a bonus ticket to any of those who arrive in costume between 5 & 6.
6 pm – PUB QUIZ hosted by DJ ZOMBO
6:30 pm—Ringer Toss with distance & accuracy competitions
7 pm THE HARLAN TWINS and CHARLIE HUSTLE & THE GRIFTERS (performing as The Tape Deck & The Creedence). Local performers, Geeksdanz, will perform their interpretation of Marty’s cycle in between sets.
DUSK—We show the movie (and after the movie The Harlan Twins will play another set)

As if that isn’t enough, thanks to our sponsors we’ve also got cornhole, food trucks, beers, white russians, commemorative toe keychains and a few more surprises.
