ticMovie Night: Ticket to a fun night

ticMovie Night Ticket to Paradisereview by Mala Raman

15 Oct 2022. After quite the hype of the “dream-team” coming back to the theaters, I was curious to see the newest RomCom at the latest tic Friday night movie. An equally curious small group met in the lobby of Pathé to check out the night’s move. We enjoyed chatting a bit and getting acquainted/reacquainted before going into the film.

The Movie

With the no-fail pair of Julie Roberts and George Clooney, our expectations were high…and we were not disappointed! The interplay of sharp barbs and natural chemistry between the 2 co-stars made for seamless delivery of some great one-liners while paving the way for a deeper story line of love, loss, forgiveness and new beginnings.

Overall it was a light-hearted, fun film that left us with a feel-good optimistic ending and a nice way to end the night.

 

A great night with the Brabantse Jazz Orchestra at Paradox

TIC Jazz Nightreview by Dietrich Haas

05 Oct 2022. Jazz might not be everybody’s favourite – and yes, it is definitely not mainstream – but it is heaps of fun and definitely once in your life a must-try if you have not visited a concert, yet.

The Orchestra

TIC gave everybody a chance to broaden their musical horizons by organizing a Jazz night at Tilburg’s Paradox with Het Brabantse Jazz Orchestra. This is a proper bigband with almost 20 years stage experience, who performed all the pieces from their latest recording. (more…)

2022 tíc Welcome Event @Dadawan!

2022 tíc Welcome Eventby Dietrich Haas

10.09.2022. Every year you will realize with great surprise that the summer holidays are finally over, when there is a new TIC Welcome Event. A great chance to meet old and make new friends, to familiarize with the Tilburg community and to learn about the upcoming activities that are planned for the new club year.

Meet & Greet

So, holidays this year were over on September 10, when everybody was invited to the Dadawan restaurant – “Everybody” then meant about 50 members, including the potential ones.

Petanque showdown!

Review by Mala Raman

26 Feb 2022. Check out our picture gallery from the event!

We met for an indoor petanque tournament at Boules Bites Bar (behind the Pieter Vreedeplein) where we were safely tucked away from the start of Carnaval festivities. We still had the carnaval spirit with several members coming dressed for the occasion.

Petanque is a summertime classic outdoor game, also known as jeu de boules. It’s a simple game where you get three chances to throw a weighted ball as big as your palm as close to the “but” (a small-ish plastic ball) as possible — or at least closer than your opponents! 

TIC members battled against each other in an intense series of ball throwing. The games moved along at a quick pace with groups of 4 or 5 taking turns at throwing their balls with sporty elegance and accuracy. At some point, competition devolved into chatting and drinking, but to be sure, a good time was had by all!

Together again at the Holiday Brunch

review by Aurora Blasco SanchoTIC Annual Holiday Brunch

20 Feb 2022. After first contact with the Tilburg International Club in the last Borrel in February, this was my first event since I became a member. After months of not being able to have in-person events, we were finally able to get together again for the Holiday Brunch. A total of 27 members met up in the atrium of the Cinecitta. We enjoyed chatting a bit with a welcome drink and getting acquainted/reacquainted before going settling in for our brunch.

Tic hosted their annual Holiday Brunch which was held @Cinecittà where we had a reserved area. The place was very cozy and everything was very good organized by TIC.

I felt very welcomed by Jolonda, Mala and Lily. Our table companions were very nice and the truth is that time flew by. I’m looking forward to the next event to discover new people and meet a couple of familiar faces.

Thank you TIC!”

House of Gucci Movie Review

Tilburg International Club Movie Nightreview by Anne van Oorschot

11 Feb 2022. After months of not being able to have in-person events, I was thrilled to be able to plan one of TIC’s most popular events – the Friday night movie. I was not the only one starved for a fun activity as a total of 14 members signed up and we met in the lobby of Pathé. We enjoyed chatting a bit and getting acquainted/reacquainted before going into the film.

The Movie

With a star studded cast, our expectations were high…and we were not disappointed! Lady Gaga was convincing as Patrizia Reggiani, later Gucci, with her beauty camouflaging her overwhelming desire for money and power. Adam Driver played the unsuspecting Maurizio Gucci, manipulated by his wife’s ambitions to push his uncle and cousin out of the company. Jeremy Irons was the perfect disapproving father who fails to dissuade his son from marriage.

A clearly old Al Pacino was really in his element as uncle Aldo Gucci, the brother really running the fashion empire. Jared Leto played his flamboyant and idiotic son, Paulo – “He’s an idiot… but he’s my idiot!” (Paulo reminded me that even made from high quality wool, the leisure suit – especially a mauve colored one – was not a positive fashion statement!!) The unbridled quest for power causes the family to unravel, taking the business with it. (more…)

A fun evening visiting GLOW in Eindhoven

Tilburg International Club Expat Trip to GLOW Eindhoven06 Nov 2021. GLOW Eindhoven is a light art festival in the public space of Eindhoven and takes place every November. The light art festival GLOW in Eindhoven breaks the visitor record every year. The twelfth edition of GLOW Eindhoven took place from 6 to 13 November 2021.

Both in the center of Eindhoven and on part of the campus of Eindhoven University of Technology, dozens of special light projects were shown during the eight days, made by artists from The Netherlands and abroad. The special event always attracts visitors from all over Europe. The six-kilometer-long City Route included illuminated buildings, churches and tunnels, while the Science Route was largely located on the University grounds.  (more…)

Silly Tilly Comedy Show Review

Silly Tilly English Comedy Showby Mala Raman

19 October 2021. For our first in-person event after our successful Welcome Event, a group tíc members and guests arrived at Theater de Boemel in  the Spoorzone to enjoy a night of comedy with international comedians from around the world! We had a very entertaining MC in comedian Stephen Bell. Bank15 and Stephen have collaborated in Tilburg by creating the Silly Tilly comedy nights.

Every comedy evening features different comedians. In a relaxed, fun and cozy backroom of the theater, we enjoyed a  line-up of guest comedians included Alina Sharipova from Uzbekistan, Victor Patrascan from Romania and “2021 Funny Women Award winner” Lara Ricote from Mexico! Isn’t that just what the doctor ordered in these tough times?

Our Welcome Back Borrel had a big crowd!

04 Feb 2022. “If you missed TIC’s first-in-a-long-time-in-person-borrel last Friday evening, you missed a fun get together! I don’t know about you, but I was pretty starved for in-person communication and the borrel hit the spot for me! 🙂 ~ Anne van Oorschot

Check out some of our pictures from a great tgif!
