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.

 

Just over a week to go…

So today we did a walk thru our Rain location.  That’s right we are so excited about the event that we have a RAIN LOCATION @ ARTISTS IMAGE RESOURCE (AIR) in the Northside.

Also we are building the staging and bar for Bayardstown Social Club this weekend and finalizing last minute details.

Both Bands,.. THE HARLAN TWINS and CHARLIE HUSTLE & THE GRIFTERS are stoked to be playing the first PGH ABIDES Event.  We have a few more surprizes in the works. Also Round Corner Cantina will be serving Rock Bottom and RIvertowne Beer as well as making you fancy White Russians (vegan options avail too).  Lomito Truck will be serving Yinz and Out Burgers and Franktuary will also be serving dogs, fries, and more.  Healcrest Farms will be serving boozy ice pops and more.

We will be screening the movie using a high end video projector and will have a more than adequate sound system.  The night begins at 5pm. We suggest you bring your own chair, but there will be some seating available.

RUNDOWN OF THE NIGHT!!!!!
