We have been frantically trying to reach you, dude

PGHABIDES15

Her life is in your hands dude! Her life is in your hands!

What in gods name are we blathering about? New shit has come to light man. We have finally decided on a venue and a date for the 2015 PGH ABIDES EVENT. Spirit Lodge/Spirit Hall is our home this year. 2 floors of games, activities, chaos and laughs. SAVE THE DATE::: FRIDAY OCTOBER 9. GET YOUR ADVANCE TICKETS HERE

We got our venue man. We are going to perform our cycle. Spirit Hall upstairs we will have a dance contest. Perform your cycle in 2 minutes or less and win big prizes. We are concerned that maybe these prizes could bump you up into a new tax bracket, but if you already made out the check, then…

You know tomorrow is already the 10th. Slip the rent under our door.

Pittsburgh Abides: “Dude, Tomorrow’s Already the 10th”

Pittsburgh Abides is more than just a screening of the movie. Now in our third year, we’re not exactly lightweights. Because Pittsburgh is a city of champions and a city of achievers, we are expanding this homage to all things Dude to two floors of activities, contests and music. Oh yeah, and we’ll still show the movie.

Be an achiever and compete in trivia, ear spitting, ringer toss, a costume contest and more. Perform your “cycle” onstage. A Pittsburgh “supergroup” organized by the Bastard Bearded Irishmen’s Danny Rectenwald will perform original renditions of Creedence songs. We are teaming up with Spirit’s resident dance party Chocolate Boombox to hold a German techno-pop themed dance party downstairs after the licensed screening of The Big Lebowski.

Beer from Rock Bottom Brewery and specialty themed cocktails will be available at the bar. Steer & Wheel will be slinging their take on In & Out-style burgers, while the Second Breakfast truck will offer lingonberry pancakes and pigs in a blanket.

Both floors of Spirit will feature video projections and Lebowski-themed décor. Channel your inner Maude and ride our zipline. Co-star in your own beaver picture and be on the lookout for the Knutsens. Commonweath Press T-shirts and commemorative collectable posters designed by Mike Budai will be available.

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.
