Puppy Bowl: A Real Tail-Gate. Rescheduled from a rainy last weekend, this Trace at the W event is a pet-friendly tailgate before the UT football game against TCU. The restaurant will have an enclosed football field in Trace’s front yard. You can enter your puppy to play in the bowl for $5, with all proceeds benefiting Austin Animal Center. Like the Puppy Bowl during the Super Bowl, there will be multiple football-shaped toys on the turf; any dog that runs a toy into the end zone will score. 3 to 5 p.m. Saturday. Free to spectators. 200 Lavaca St. eventbrite.com/e/puppy-bowl-tickets-50357358214.
