The Dude Abides at Penn State

Every once in a while, a movie comes along that redefines cinema as we know it. The Big Lebowski is not one of these films. Nonetheless, I was thrilled to hear that The State Theater would be showing it this Friday.

The film is being shown as a “welcome back” event for students. What other movie better captures the spirit of college than one about a jobless stoner and his bowling buddies getting caught up in a mob deal gone bad?

There will be two showings at 7:00 and 9:30 p.m., and tickets are only $5. I’m fairly certain most of you didn’t get a chance to see this classic in theaters back in 1998, so I recommend taking advantage of this unique opportunity.

Also, in the meantime, take a half hour and read Two Gentlemen of Lebowski, a Shakespearean take on the film. It’s better than an acid flashback.

Southern Kitsch and Sweet Tea at Cracker Barrel

After several months of anticipation, I was finally able to check out State College’s new Cracker Barrel on its opening day. Located at 215 Colonnade Blvd., there are few surprises at the chain’s new location. With rows of rocking chairs out front, checker boards and a game of peg solitaire at every table, I could have been at any franchise location in the country — not that that’s a bad thing.
