Downtown Seattle Association
Come out of your office tomorrow between 11am-1:30pm for a once in a lifetime opportunity to put your golfing skills to the test. Intuit will be in town, creating a driving range on 2nd Avenue to film a commercial for its GoPayment mobile credit card reader, featuring lessons from former PGA tour player Jeff Coston.

The Office of Economic Development is excited to host this commercial production in Seattle. Commercial and corporate work is the  cornerstone of the local film industry, accounting for one third of all permitted filmwork in Seattle. The City’s ability to attract and accommodate this type of large scale production helps to grow the local industry. The Intuit “GoPayment” production is hiring over 100 film crew work days, is working with numerous local vendors, and has booked 58 hotel room nights for traveling crew.

Earlier this year, Capitol Hill’s largest music venue, Neumos, announced its plans to create a new stage to feature smaller acts and more intimate performances.  A new venue dubbed The Barboza is set to open in the lower level of the Pike/Pine hotspot April 18th and will include a new performance area and full-service bar.  With the first two shows sold out and a steady list of upcoming performances, The Barboza looks like a promising new addition to the Seattle nightlife scene.
