It’s Labor Day weekend! That can only mean one thing: a weekend of amazing events in Austin to help celebrate the weekend and get your mind off work. This is also a great opportunity to relax for just a little bit longer before classes get really crazy or work starts to pick up again.

TEXAS! FIGHT! This Saturday, the Texas Longhorns will kick-off their 2013 football season. Get ready for Saturdays filled with tailgates, cheering and of course, burnt orange. While tickets are likely to be very expensive for this season opener, be sure to cheer on the Longhorns at any sports bar. It will be televised on the Longhorn Network.

Backstreet Boys w/ DJ Pauly D
