5 March 2021. by Essi Koskela. Unlike the several devoted beerophiles attending the tic beer tasting event, I was hesitant at first. My preference has settled in the plain pilsje and lager after years of empirical research, and I was not sure I was ready to challenge this concept.
Unfooled by my prejudice, I set out to experience the selection of four local craft beers: a hazy landbier (Beerze Classic), IPA, a subtle triple (School Strafwerk), and a thick, rich porter (Engelbertus Zachte Heelmeester). Joining us online was our beer master, Hans from HetBierMoment. Thanks to tic, 4 beers + a beer glass were delivered straight to each participant’s door. That’s tic service at its best! (more…)
If human ingenuity has no limits, that of the tíc Events Team manages to exceed even that. In the midst of a pandemic, which qualifies pre-eminently as force majeure, no one would have blamed the team if they had shelved their efforts and waited for more propitious times. But no, on they soldiered, even when their numbers were reduced owing to a crop of adorable babies. Mazeltov!
Expanding our virtual world
Indomitable, they grabbed the virtual world by the horns and ran with it. Virtual parties with Netflix and boardgames, then with goodies delivered to the door, same with a virtual beer tasting session, and the Book Club zoomed on regardless and for those starved of human company the Morning Mug was born.
5 Feb 2020. by Essi Koskela. Enabled by Confundrum Escape Rooms based in Canada, 14 eager tíc members gathered behind their computer screens for a virtual escape room experience.
Prisoners Hatch a Plan
Participants were divided into two rooms, after being captured by the evil pirate Blackbeard and thrown behind bars on his ship. As the clock started ticking, we set out to explore the 3D virtual room for clues and useful items to try and escape. (more…)
LET THE GAMES BEGIN!
25 Jan 2021. by Nikos Basbas. Game lovers got together for a night of fun and fierce competition!
Our Game Night Experience
Last week’s game night with the Tilburg International Club was fun! I did not expect playing board games online can be so easy and enjoyable. Around nine households joined, and we played Code Names which I would describe as a combination of Skribbl.io (Pictionary game from our Holiday borrel) and Monopoly. It was some cross between buying property (like land) in Monopoly and trying to get as many cards (laid out on a board) as possible in Code Names. (more…)
18 Jan 2020. by Mala Raman. We had an awesome evening in our ugliest Christmas Sweaters!
For those members who were able to join this fun event, each participant received a wonderful surprised beforehand. tíc board members personally delivered a plate of snacks and drinks including a special vegan platter from Picnic Platters! We had a choice of white or red wine or a La Trappe Tripel; there was a little something for everyone.
11 December 2020. by Masako Kato. I joined the tíc Netflix Party. Netflix Party ia an online film party where we look at the same Netflix movie simultaneously from our home and chat with each other about the film while we are watching it.
It was my first time to attend a Netflix Party and I had no idea how this was going to work. I already had a Netflix account, but I needed to download Teleplay, an app which lets you join the party.
TIC was as always very considerate and inclusive. That is to say that they gave us a very clear technical instruction what we needed to do and also organised a zoom call just before the movie started to help us with any technical hiccup. So, nobody needs to miss it due to the lack of technical skill. I needed this call to get help to activate my Telplay. (more…)
Hoping to cut a deal, a professional bank robber agrees to return all the money he stole in exchange for a reduced sentence. But when two FBI agents set him up for murder, he must now go on the run to clear his name (“In-and-Out Bandit.” ) and bring them to justice.
Many thanks to Anne for arranging the bag of goodies, a must for munching during the film. All 10 tickets were taken and the usual suspects attended at the Pathe. We met in the lobby and had no trouble recognizing each other with masks!! (more…)
This year our celebrations are going to look a lot different than previous years, but for #throwbackthursday, in honor of our traditional holiday borrel and massively ugly sweaters, let’s take a look at what was on display last year.
20 December 2019
As always, it was crazy crowded at the annual Holiday borrel at Cafe Bakker with plenty of ugly sweaters to go around. Take a look!
