Get interactive with the NFL Experience It turns out Super Bowl City is not that great, but the NFL Experience at the Moscone Center, on the other hand, is definitely worth the price of the $35 ticket. There are interactive games, lots of NFL history displays, and players and coaches cruising around giving away autographs. It goes from 3pm to 10pm all week, 10am to 10pm on Saturday, and 10am to 2pm on Sunday.

Play with dogs at the Puppy Bowl Pop-Up Yeah, you read that right. Gott’s Roadside in the Ferry Building is hosting a pop-up puppy cafĂ© starting featuring adoptable rescues from local shelters. It’s not actually the real-life puppy bowl, but it is sponsored by Animal Planet and who cares because puppies.

Watch OneRepublic for free The good (or bad depending on how you look at it) news is that OneRepublic is not the British boy band One Direction. Also they'll be at City Stage (Justin Herman Plaza) at Super Bowl City playing at 8:30pm. There will be a fireworks show, too.

Get kinda weird at The Playboy Party The bunnies are taking over AT&T Park from 10pm to 2am for a party that’s (ostensibly) to celebrate the magazine’s redesign, but is really about playmates, celebrities, and lots of drinks. It’s invite only unless you want to go VIP, which you do. Contact playboysb@itkexp.com for the deets.
