Just how memorable was Jeff Bridges as the SoCal slacker “The Dude” in the Coen Brothers’ classic The Big Lebowski? So memorable that Two Boots Pizza named a spicy Cajun bacon-cheeseburger pie in honor of his character. On Thursday, shuffle over to Tompkins Square Park to score a free slice at this outdoor screening of the 1998 comedy. For even more Bridges appreciation, mark your calendar for Wednesday, August 15, when 92YTribeca screens Against All Odds (1984) as a part of its ongoing series “Jeff Bridges, Before the Dude.” Taylor Hackford’s drama concerns a crazy love triangle in which Bridges, in his prime, looks dashingly hot.
