St. Pat 5This weekend we’ll meet up again for our annual St. Patrick’s Day borrel.  For #ThrowbackThursday, here’s a look at our gathering from 2 years ago!

Review by Andrew Kelly. This year was a special year as St. Patrick’s day, the national holiday of my home country, the Republic of Ireland, coincided with a Friday. So, the TIC team decided to combine the monthly borrel with a St. Patrick’s day celebration and, of course, have it at Ruby’s Irish bar.

Some of you might ask who is St. Patrick and did he invent Guinness? Well, no, he was a Welsh priest who brought Christianity to Ireland after the fall of the Roman empire. If you want more info on this, check out this Wikipage. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saint_Patrick

So, St. Patrick’s day 2017 started like all big parties with the decoration in the party area in Ruby’s bar. Snacks were supplied and from 17:00 to 18:00, it was two pints of Guinness for the price of one. As they say back in my home town “ happy days”. Once every one had arrived, the guests were invited to learn how to make a baby Guinness which seem to have gotten the party started.

As everyone was enjoying themselves, I completed one of my bucket list items and that was to play in an Irish bar on St. Patrick’s Day. I only managed to do 3 songs, but the crowed seemed to enjoy it. The rest of the night was spent mixing with other pub goers in a Irish celebration were everyone was welcome.

Good morning all! Friday has arrived and I imagine some of you are just as happy as me because of that 😆 A nice group braved the damp and blustery weather to meet and discuss The Lost Girls of Paris on our last #bookclub session 📖. We gathered around the cosy fireplace at one of our member's place and, while we all liked the book's storyline, we found the characters a bit unrealistic and the writing so-so. . A group member brought 3 really interesting book choices and (after explaining to us what a "crawdad" is ;-) we decided on: ✳️Where the Crawdads Sing, by Delia Owens (368 pages). . Many people have claimed this book is a "must read" so we hope you will get the book, read it and join us for a nice evening to discuss the book ☕. . We will meet on Tuesday, February 18th - 7:30 so make a note of it and plan to join us (location to be confirmed via email). All the best, Anne #expat #expatlife #dutchculture #holland #netherlands #visitnetherlands #visitholland #thenetherlands . . . . . . . . . . . #multicultural #tilburginternationalclub #tilburginternational #tilburg #tilburgdrinkt #tilburgismooi #visittilburg #ditistilburg #brabant #noordbrabant #visitbrabant #tilburgcom #inbrabant
