someone winning two "the dude endures" pint glasses at intermission

last night, my friend dan and i drove to alpine for alpine’s version of an alamo drafthouse big lebowski night: people in costume get in free, $5 white russians all night, $10 for entry, including a buffet inspired by the movie. there were about…20ish people there, 6 or 7 in costume. buffet included tater tot casserole (much stranger and less delicious than it sounds, hard to determine its exact contents in the dark), seven-layer dip (heavy on the sour cream), spinach dip, mini hot dogs, swedish meatballs, spam crackers, ritz crackers, cheese balls, celery sticks stuffed with peanut butter and raisins. at intermission they gave out door prizes, one of which dan won ($20 gift card to the saddle club, the bar next door). small town version of big town events. humble, sweet, kind of weird, a little squirrelly, very good-hearted. home by 11. thumbs up.
