We had another beautiful day on September 24, 2016 for our annual Welcome Event that officially opens our club year! This year’s theme was the Puishaven Quest where we had to search the area for answers to questions about the many sights and scenes around the Puishaven in Tilburg.
To start the afternoon, everyone gathered at the eclectic HeAVENs Kitchen for coffee and apple pie as we were welcomed to the city by Tilburg’s vice mayor, Erik de Ridder. After the warm welcome, we divided up into teams and headed out for the adventure! As the teams made their way back to the final destination, Undici Keukens, (some still with chocolate on their face from the free bon bon at Huize Geers Chocolatier!) they were welcomed by a cold beverage and turned in their answer sheets. We had a lot of fun socializing at Undici while enjoying drinks and snacks provided by the biological restaurant, Eethuis Twentig while waiting for the winners to be announced. The winning team was “Team Ellis” and each team member received a gift certificate for ice cream at Porto Koffie en Ijs – an adorable little shop in the Puishaven selling specialty coffee and ice cream.
We ended the afternoon with the grand prize drawing of a 50 euro gift certificate to restaurant Bij Vermeer. It was a great afternoon meeting new people, catching up with old friends and just having fun!
