Nearly fifty years ago, a Golden Ticket hidden inside of a Wonka Bar gave 5 lucky winners a lifetime supply of chocolate. It also gave each winner and a guest access to Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory, a fantasy land filled with chocolate rivers, Umpa Lumpas, and everlasting Gobstoppers. The visit lifted the spirits of Charlie and his family in the beloved cult classic Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory, and reminded each of us to dream big as we unwrapped the foil coating Wonka Bars for years to come.

Borrowing a move directly from Willy Wonka’s playbook, our friends at Do617 have recently teamed up with Tito’s Handmade Vodka to host a Golden Ticket scavenger hunt of their very own.

While contest winners will not get a trip straight to sugar heaven in their prize package, the Tito’s Handmade Vodka Scavenger Hunt will include something that may be even better. One lucky grand prize winner and a guest will receive entry to any show at the Brighton Music Hall for a full year.



Here’s how the contest works:

Each day, a Golden Ticket in the shape of a vinyl is hidden somewhere in the Greater Boston area. Clues hinting at the ticket’s location will appear on Do617 social media pages for 20 days leading up to the Pop-Up Record Shop event, which will take place at the Brighton Music Hall on April 16th (Record Store Day). Twenty prizes consisting of Tito’s swag, The Other Side Of The Sun! compilation CD, and free concert tickets will be rewarded to the first person to find the Golden Ticket and send an email to the address provided each day.

Of the twenty winners, one Golden Vinyl Grand Prize winner will be selected and rewarded with a year’s worth of free shows at the Brighton Music Hall for two! With a number of tours including Hit The Lights, Eve 6, and We Are Scientists passing through the Allston venue in the coming months, this really is the ultimate prize package.
