If you have any questions that this Web site hasn't answered, or if you have an event that you'd like to suggest, you can contact us by E-mail, and we'll get right back to you.
Alternatively, we'd like to suggest that you just show up at one of our get-togethers and join in. We'd love to see you, the more the merrier, and there's never any fee. Besides, it's fun! So come on down!
Next get-together: Saturday, July 6th, 2013
Our Get-Togethers (GTs) are held:
1st & 3rd Saturdays of the month at 10:00 AM at:
Phinney Neighborhood Center
6532 Phinney Avenue North
Seattle, WA 98103
1. When is your next meeting?
We meet every 1st and 3rd Saturday of the month, so our next meeting will be on Saturday, July 6th, 2013, starting at 10:00 AM sharp. Be sure and give yourself enough extra time to find parking.
2. How many people are involved in this thing?
Currently (3/18/2002) there are about 1100 people on our members list, about evenly divided between men and women. We are growing slowly but steadily. Of course, not everybody shows up at every event. Small events get 5 to 20 people, big ones usually about 50 to 150. Our weekend GT's usually get anywhere from 40 to 80.
3. What's a "GT"?
A Get-Together. Twice a month, we get together for an hour or so for coffee and to discuss what events are planned, where to meet, introduce ourselves to new members, and so on. See the top of this page for place and times. The next GT will be on Saturday, July 6th, 2013 from 10 to 11 AM.
4. How do I become a member?
Easy. Just come to a Get-Together and sign up. That's all there is to it. You'll get a chance to see what we're about, meet some people, find out what events are planned, and have a fun time. So, what are you waiting for? The next GT will be on Saturday, July 6th, 2013 starting at 10:00 AM at our regular meeting place at the Phinney Neighborhood Center; the address is listed at the top of this page.
5. Do I have to come to your weekend meetings? I hate getting up on Saturdays.
The short answer is Yes.
Our weekend get-togethers are the one place where you can come and you don't have to try to locate people in a crowd that you've never seen before. More importantly, the whole idea of Restless is to meet people. Which will never happen if you don't get out of the house now and then. So yes, we do ask that you try to show up at least occasionally and say Hi. Besides, the GT's are fun! We get to check in with each other, meet new people who are there for the first time, talk, socialize, hear about new events, maybe go out to brunch, and generally have a good time like any other big group of friends. This is that opportunity to meet new people that you kept saying you wish you had. So take it! See the top of this page for where and when.
6. What kind of events do you have?
Just about everything. Parties, hikes, dances, movie nights, picnics, you name it. We've visited hot springs, explored caves, gone to plays and art shows, had beach parties, gone rollerblading, biking, skating, volleyball, skiing, and have even been on TV! And we keep coming up with more new and interesting things to do all the time. If there's something that you think would be fun to do with a group, just speak up. If it sounds like fun, we'll probably do it. We're always looking for new and interesting places to go, things to do, and people to meet! Check out the event calendar for what's happening.
7. How do I get into the event calendar? It takes a password.
Come to one of the weekend GT's, sign up, and we'll give you one. Sorry, but for reasons of security, permanent passwords are never given out by phone or email.
8. What's the age range of your members?
Mostly twenties and thirties. If you're considerably over 40, you might consider contacting Seattle's Sleepless at (206) 527-7400; their members tend to be in the late 40's, 50's and up. Or check out their Web site at: http://www.SeattleSleepless.org
9. But I'm only 19! Can I come too?
Of course. Like we said, it's open to everyone. We have a few members who are just over 40, too. As long as you're cool with it, so are we. So don't hang back, join the fun!
10. Are you trying to tell me all this is free? Sounds like a come-on.
Well, it's nonprofit, which generally means it's pretty much pay-your-own-way. We feel that you get about as much out of it as you're willing to put into it, which is why we put some effort into it and wind up having a lot of fun. And no, it's not a come-on and we're not selling anything. If you don't believe it, come to a weekend get-together and check us out.
11. Where are your events held?
All over, but mostly in Seattle and the Eastside. If you'd like to see something in your area, come to a GT and say so.
12. If I come to a get-together, do I have to say anything?
No, you're welcome to just sit there silently and listen, but be warned; someone nice may think you're attractive and come over, give you a smile and say Hi.
13. I'm new to the city; how do I get there?
Check out our map and directions page. After that, if you're still stuck, just contact us.
