The Way of the Dude, The Idler Academy, 81 Westbourne Park Road, London W2 5QHHave you ever wanted to laze around all day in your dressing gown and shades, drinking White Russians, admiring your fabulous artisan carpet and occasionally squeezing in the odd game of ten-pin bowling? If so, The Idler Academy’s ‘The Way of the Dude’ seminar on August 10 (6-9pm) is for you. Coen Brothers’ classic ‘The Big Lebowski’ – and more specifically, its star Jeff Bridges’ (above) ‘The Dude’ –  is responsible for numerous pop culture catchphrases (‘nice marmot’), annual events and even its own religion, Dudeism. ‘The Way of the Dude’ event, headed up by Dude-devout Oliver Benjamin (founder of the Church of the Latter-Day Dude) invites attendees to join in love and admiration for the be-robed one. Strictly no German Nihilists allowed. Book now, dudes.
