Mature Friends’ Christmas Lunch

Every year in mid-December, large number of Mature Friends get together in true holiday fashion for a Christmas lunch. Held in Seattle on a Saturday preceding Christmas, Mature Friends gather in a private dining room at Robb's 125th Street Bar and Grill. This festive occasion kicks off with a rousing cocktail hour (or two).

We know what you're thinking: Christmastime gay get-togethers mean an obligatory white-elephant gift exchange. Boring! But not so any more! Our members have voted to replace the usual white-elephant gift exchange with donations of new, unwrapped toys to give to Toys for Tots. It's a great way to celebrate the holiday season while also making local, disadvantaged children the recipients of a gift for Christmas.

But it's not all about giving. To further tempt members to participate, the lunch is also about receiving, in the form of door prizes! But even if the chance to make a kid happy doesn't tempt you nor the chance to make yourself happy with a fine door prize, then the camaraderie, great cocktails, and Robb's fine menu should definitely do the trick.

Every year, we get together on a Saturday afternoon, midway through December, and have a great time. If you don't believe me, check out the photos for yourself. Better yet, sign up for the previous Christmas lunch. Not a member of Mature Friends? Don't worry, you can always join at any time during the year and then sign up for this heart-warming, stomach warming event. Merry Christmas in advance!
