Today has definitely been a busy day. After sleeping in and running a few errands, Liz and I arrived at the airport with enough time to snag some delicious nachos. I even remembered to text a co-worker about it , to rub it in of course, and reference an on-going office joke.
Even though we had some flight delays, we were able to get everywhere on time and were picked up by The Dude and Walter Brad in the Gran Torino; green, with minimal rust coloration. Reminded me a lot of my high school buddy's 70's Dodge Dart.
The hotel is pretty nice. It's the little things that let you know you're in a nice place. For example: being asked how many door cards you'd like, the quality of the sheets on the bed, the extra pillows, and the free wi-fi access. Oh, and the showers are AMAZING.
So before dinner I was able to meet the 7-11 crew. The dudes gave us some sweet pins they had made for the event. We then headed out with Duder and his gang in the Torino to get some burgers. Dragon suggested W. W. Cousins was the best burger in town so we figured we should give it a try. While i thought the toppings bar was amazing, I wasn't too impressed with the burger. Way too greasy. The bun was soaked through before I was half-finished.
On the way back ol Duder's car broke. One of the windows fell down into the door. After a few hours we had accomplished a trip to Wal-Mart for a socket extender, finally figured out how to take the door apart, and rigged the door so well I think Red Green would be proud. Dude took a plastic cup, wadded it up and wedged it in. After that he took a couple rags and tied everything together and reinforced that with some Gorilla Tape.
We then decided to check out the venue for tomorrow and saw Will and Scott's Dude-mobile in the parking lot. This led to a photo opportunity, but not many turned out due to the poor lighting at 11:30pm. I think he put one up on Twitter and tagged it #lebowskipodcast.
So now it's time for some relaxing until things ramp up again tomorrow night. If you're going to be around you should find us and say hi. We'd also love to record something for the podcast if you're up for it.
The Dude Abides.
