Dust off the old bowling shoes and get some face time with a mirror to practice your best “Nobody fucks with the Jesus,” because you’ve got less than two weeks before Lebowski Fest 2009, a two-night celebration of the Coen brothers cinematic masterpiece, rolls into town.

From their website:

Lebowski Fest returns to Seattle on July 20th & 21st! The Fest kicks off with the Movie Party at the Fremont Outdoor Cinema with a performance by Har Mar Superstar, Jeff Dowd and white russian flavored popcorn on July 20th. The next night is the Bowling Party at ACME Bowl with bowling, beverages, costumes and what-have-you on July 21st.

Tickets are on sale now for Lebowski Fest Seattle. The last Lebowski Fest Seattle sold out in advance so please get your tickets soon.

For those of you that are unaware, Jeff Dowd was not only a member of the famed Seattle Seven, but he also served as inspiration for the character of Jeffrey “The Dude” Lebowski.  It’s not certain whether there will actually be a performance of some kind from him, or if he’s simply acting as emcee and pillar of cult movie awesomeness, but no doubt Lebowski Fest would be missing something without him there.

Seattle Metblogs wants to ensure that our local die-hard Lebowski fans get a chance to attend, regardless of ticket and/or ticket money availability, which is why we’re giving away TWO pairs of tickets to BOTH of this year’s events.  But first you’ve got to prove your love for Lebowski to us.  To be eligible to win one of the two prize packs (each consists of two tickets to both the movie and bowling party) available, all you have to do is submit your best (and original) The Big Lebowski-inspired photo to us by midnight on Wednesday, July 15th.  We’ll pick the best two and post them on Friday the 17th when the winners are announced.

All contest entries should be submitted by adding them to the Seattle Metblogs Flickr pool, along with a link to it in the comments section below.  Please note that Metblogs, its affiliates, sponsors, and writers will not be held responsible for any damaged rugs and/or severed pinky toes that result from the creation of your entry.

    Couldn’t I just smoke a J and drink a white Russian and win by putting no effort forward, whatsoever?

    Thanks to everyone who entered, both on this post and the follow-up one. I threw everyone’s name into my bowling bag and randomly selected the following two winners:

    1. deadc
    2. shine

    I’ll be contacting you both via email with info on how to claim your tickets, as well as forcing you to buy me a white russian at the bowling party on Tuesday.
