by Sam Nelson 

In the last 15 years The Big Lebowski has attracted an almost-cult-like following of faithful fans.  In the movie, Jeff Bridges' character, the Dude, strives to “abide” and take it easy but is challenged to do so in the county of Los Angeles.  But what if he lived in New Orleans?  The Lebowski Fest and a whole lot of fans are on their way here to find out if they can abide here in the Big Easy.
