#FBF: Ugly Sweaters and a good borrel was had by all!

Next Sunday we’ll meet up again for our annual Ugly Sweater Borrel. For #FlashbackFriday, here’s a look at our “ugly” gathering from 2018!

x–x–x–x–x

by Mala Raman

22.12.2018. Once again, we had a great time socializing and snacking during our traditional Christmas borrel.  This year we met at Cafe Bakker with everyone charged with wearing their best “ugly sweater.” It was interesting to see what our members’ ideas were of an “ugly” sweater.

Despite the overcrowding around the Korte Heuvel that we were expecting, it was pleasantly cozy in Cafe Bakker where members shared their happiness of starting the holiday season and discussing Christmas and New Year’s plans.

A borrel was the perfect way to bid everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

tícMovie Night – The French Dispatch

by Katie Schweitzer

11 Nov 2021. For our Friday night movie, we chose a film full of well known actors that looked absurd and funny – The French Dispatch. The clip looked pretty absurd at any rate 😉Tilburg International Club Movie Night

The French Dispatch is a classic Wes Anderson movie (apparently, I’ve only seen one other one) about “The French Dispatch,” a newspaper based in France which circulates in Kansas, USA, bringing foreign culture, events, and perspective to a place that otherwise would have no exposure to them.

The core of the film was focused on three distinct short stories, which were featured in that very newspaper. A notable group of famous stars played roles big and small.

#FBF tícMovie Night: The Gentlemen review

Tonight we’ll meet up for another tícMovie Night. For #FlashbackFriday, here’s a look back at the Cinecitta movie “The Gentlemen”!

by Anne van Oorschot

5 Jun 2020. After weeks of event cancellations, it was with great enthusiasm that I heard movie theaters could reopen on June 1st. 🙂

Pathé was careful to stick to the required 1.5 meter distance and we were assigned seats individually as we entered the theater. We sat in pairs with 3 seats and 2 rows separating guests. The Gentlemen, a combination gangster/shoot-em-up and comedy film, was a good choice and just what we needed. (more…)

by Rochelle Buhr

25.09.2021. The tilburg international club (tíc) once again kicked-off another club season with its annual Welcome Event; this year at RAW Restaurant in the Spoorzone.

Once again, a great Welcome Event from the Tilburg International Club!

The afternoon started with a warm greeting, of course, by tic board members and an official welcome from Tilburg City Council member, Vice-Mayor Oscar Dusschooten. (more…)

“Beerophiles” gather… hilarity ensues

Tilburg International Club Beer Tasting 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.

The Experience

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…)

Anita has something to say about Morning Mug

Tilburg International Club coffee morningAnita says…

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.

Unfortunately, none of us escaped – Eaten by Sharks!

Tilburg International Club Escape Room5 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…)

Game Night was Game On!

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…)

A personal Ugly Sweater Christmas borrel!

Tilburg International Club Christmas BorrelCameras On, Sweaters On, Party On!

18 Jan 2020. by Mala Raman. We had an awesome evening in our ugliest Christmas Sweaters!

Our Snacks

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.
