Grab the summer by the horns with a mechanical bull riding tournament and more! Bull & Bowl is great for a date night, hang out with friends, company team-building outings, and it’s even a great activity for a bachelorette weekend!
Austinites are invited to drink, dine, game, and show off their best rodeo skills at the West 6th hotspot’s Mechanical Bull Tournament for a chance to win some fabulous prizes fit for any rodeo champ.
The tournament is open to the public with four separate rounds – initial “tryouts”, a “qualifying” round, semifinals (featuring the top 10 qualifiers), and “finals” (featuring the top three semifinalists). Prizes include the following in addition to a trophy and bragging rights for each winner:
- First Prize: $500 Gift Card to Tecovas
- Second Prize: Bowling Party for up to 10 guests. ($300 value, includes two lanes for two hours, two drink tickets per guest, and a family-style dinner)
- Third Prize: Dinner for two at Bull & Bowl ($100 value)
In addition to the tournament, the Grand Opening Party will feature a live set from DJ Eric Generic starting at 10 pm, who will also MC the tournament, and complimentary first come-first-serve games (including karaoke, shuffleboard, duckpin bowling, and billiards) starting at 7 pm.
What The Heck Is Duckpin?
Duckpin is a variation of traditional 10 pin bowling that has been around since the 1900s. A smaller ball and shorter lanes make the sport more difficult than traditional bowling, but you get 3 tries to nail a strike.
