What do fans of “The Big Lebowski” do when Arlington Cinema N Drafthouse (2903 Columbia Pike, Arlington) hosts a screening and musical homage to the flick called Dude Fest? The dudes abide, of course. The mayhem begins tonight at 8 with a special live acoustic set — courtesy of Dave Jordan, who will reprise tracks from the offbeat Coen brothers movie and play a few other tunes he thinks “the Dude would love.” A round of trivia, a costume contest and more antics follow, with the main event scheduled to start at 9:30 p.m. Admission is $7, and tickets are available online or at the door. Call 703/486-2345 or visit www.arlingtondrafthouse.com.
