Snapchat geofilters are now available at the JW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country Resort & Spa.

Geofilters allow Snapchat users to inform their followers where and when they are someplace with a fun font to represent the area. Whether in a private video or picture to a friend, or on their public story, it’s a quirky way to let people know what you’re up to. Snapchat has recently made it possible for its users to create exclusive geofilters for their events and celebrations.

The filter design will be included in wedding packages and can also be added to group and meeting packages. Wedding and event planners can choose from available designs or even create their own concepts; the resort takes care of the rest.

Snapchat has quickly become  one of the most popular apps among smartphone users of all ages. More than 100 million people use the app daily, and Snapchat has more than 10 billion video views per day with an average of 9,000 photos shared on the app every second.

In 2020, COVID-19 forced the early closure of the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo. Last year, select events were held in person. But in 2022, the rodeo was back in full force as it celebrated its 90th anniversary. Successfully staging the largest rodeo in the world relies on the contributions of 35,000 volunteers.

 

Houston’s C. Baldwin hotel has debuted its event space: Parlour Hideaway. Located on the first floor of the hotel, it is accessible through a hidden door near the lobby. Accommodating intimate gatherings of up to 65 guests, Parlour Hideaway is available for event bookings only and not open to the public. Chef Chris Cosentino of the hotel’s on-site restaurant, Rosalie Italian Soul, created a new curated catering and drink menu exclusive to the space.

 

Puttshack, a tech-infused mini-golf experience with food and drink, is opening a location at the Village on the Parkway, an open-air shopping destination within the Dallas metropolitan area. Opening in the summer of 2023, it will be Puttshack’s second location in Texas.
