Tito's Bogey Boat is the party HQ, anchored just off the 13th hole at Austin Country Club, site of the World Golf Classic - Dell Technologies Match Play event.
Win a "golden ticket" for you and two friends to join the fun on one of two tournament days: Thursday 3/24 or Friday 3/25.
- Scan the QR code on the 7th hole flag at the Butler Pitch and Putt. Sign up to be a Tito's Taster and get your password.
- Next stop is the Love, Tito's store downtown at 215 Lavaca. Tell them the password and you'll get a blind selection from a container of golf balls.
- If the golf ball you select is copper colored, then you've won!

Austin police are investigating the killing of Moriah "Mo" Wilson after she was found with gunshot wounds inside an Austin home.
Wilson, a gravel and mountain bike racer, was visiting Austin from Colorado in preparation for the Gravel Locos race on Saturday taking place in Hico, a small town 2 hours from Austin.
On Wednesday, her roommate came home and found Wilson unresponsive with "a lot of blood near her,” police said. It is now being investigated as a suspicious death. No further information on the suspect or motive behind the killing are available at this time.
Wilson recently had become a full-time biker after winning a slew of races in the past year.
Some of your favorite Instagram filters can’t be used in Texas anymore and Austinites are sounding off on social media.
Meta, Facebook and Instagram’s parent company, announced on Wednesday that certain filters would no longer be available in Texas.
The change is a result of Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton’s lawsuit against Meta, alleging the company uses facial recognition technology that violates laws in Texas. A release from Meta says it stopped using facial recognition tech in November 2021 and denies Paxton’s allegations.
Some Austinites bemoaned the shift, saying some of their favorite filters were now unavailable.

Meta said it plans to create an opt-in system for both Texas and Illinois residents, who are facing the same issues.
