Working for the Weekend: It's Texas Longhorns game day, but that's not all

Football, bacon and a terrifying movie experience that we aren't exactly sure why people would want to attend.

AUSTIN, Texas — From laughing until you cry to crying from fear, and even eating food so good it makes you want to cry, there's a chance that if you get out this weekend, tears will be flowing.

And that's not only because one team will lose after the Texas vs. LSU game at DKR Memorial Stadium.

Anyways, there's always something great going on in Central Texas. Here's a list of a few of the things you can attend:
