January was a rough month for Vikings and Packers fans, but the Pupper Bowl has something that will bring people together—even people who don’t know (or care!) what the first part of this sentence means. Pupper Bowl very is loosely inspired by the Super Bowl, but with dogs. The day begins with an adoption event at 11 a.m., sponsored by Ruff Start Rescue, followed by dog... football. There are three weight classes that attendees can buy into for $20 (advance registration recommended). That scores you a beer and a bandana, and you get to watch your confused pet try to score for your team. The competition should be fierce, but adorable. Other canine fun his weekend includes live TV viewings of Animal Planet’s Puppy Bowl on Sunday at Stanley’s (there will be mutt loaf on the menu) and at the Block in St. Louis Park.
