#TBT: Welcome to Tilburg 2017

We had another great day on 9 September 2017 for our annual Welcome to Tilburg event that officially opens our club year!

Every year we pick a different area of Tilburg to present to new and established members of the international community in Noord Brabant.  This year we focused on the Nieuwlandstraat in the city center. The streets in and around this area are full of eclectic cafes, bakeries and shops … something a little different from the mainstream shopping area.

tic President, Yolonda van Riel with Tilburg Vice Mayor, Erik de Ridder

We officially welcomed expats back from the summer starting with coffee and a sweet at Locals Café, followed by a welcome from Tilburg’s Vice Mayor, Erik de Ridder and finished off with drinks and snacks at WijnBar Cru – and of course juice and treats for our littlest expats! There were games and prizes from local eateries which procure, whenever possible, goods from local vendors in and around Tilburg.

As in past years, TIC partnered with Tilburg University, P&D Care, Holland Expat Center and the Municipality of Tilburg for a fun afternoon program while finding some hidden gems in the heart of Tilburg.

We ended the afternoon with the grand prize drawing of a €50 gift certificate to the restaurant Bij Vermeer. It was a relaxing and entertaining afternoon meeting new people, catching up with old friends and just having fun!

We had another beautiful day on 24 September 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!
