[VIDEO] Introducing Venice’s “Dude”

We aren’t bashful about our connection with our community, Venice Beach. The rich culture here includes roots in art, expression, rebellion, skate & surf, and even weightlifting. Even the Big Lebowski calls Venice home. It’s not the first time we’ve shown “the dude” some love, either. 

Believe it or not, the iconic character played by Jeff Bridges is inspired by a real guy, nicknamed “the dude,” in our backyard. Not only is he very accurately depicted in the film, he’s even more complex than his knack for a good beverage and unintelligible speech.

Enjoy a little bit of Venice culture in the video above… man.
