Bot­toms up

BEER-GUZ­ZLING Dar­winites will be de­lighted to hear a new mi­cro­brew­ery could soon be open­ing in the north­ern sub­urbs.

Beaver Brew­ery has an ap­pli­ca­tion in with the De­vel­op­ment Con­sent Au­thor­ity, want­ing to trans­form a bor­ing Co­conut Grove ware­house into a de­li­cious mi­cro­brew­ery. Although it’s early days, Bushie is ex­cited by the pos­si­bil­i­ties.

Snappy gift

LA­BOR mem­ber for the fed­eral seat of Solomon, Luke Gosling, is known as a con­sci­en­tious man so it was no sur­prise he has du­ti­fully filled out his par­lia­men­tary reg­is­ter of in­ter­ests. One of the gifts, how­ever, did set a few tongues wag­ging. He was given a croc­o­dile tongue by iconic croc hunter and taxi­der­mist Mick Pit­man. How very Ter­ri­to­rian.

Ready for a blue

FOR­MER Chief Min­is­ter Adam Giles re­turned to Dar­win from ru­ral Vic­to­ria to tes­tify in the case against for­mer Ter­ri­tory top cop John McRoberts. His tes­ti­mony was rea­son­ably short but ea­gle- eyed fash­ion­istas no­ticed he was wear­ing the same sharp blue suit he wore to the royal com­mis­sion hear­ings. Must be kept for spe­cial oc­ca­sions.

All tie-d up

A ROOKIE Ter­ri­tory lawyer found him­self out of his depth ear­lier this month on his first ap­pear­ance be­fore a Supreme Court judge when he re­alised too late he didn’t know how to tie his tie. Luck­ily, veteran An­drew

Ge­orge was on hand to show him the ropes, ty­ing the gen­tle­manly ac­ces­sory around his own neck be­fore hand­ing it back to his ju­nior. By the time Jus­tice Gra­ham Hi­ley re­turned to the bench the young chap was suit­ably at­tired to main­tain the dig­nity of the court and his hon­our was bliss­fully ig­no­rant of the near wardrobe mal­func­tion.

Crack­ing Mindil

ICONIC Ter­ri­tory whip maker Mick Deni

gan turned a few heads when he made an ap­pear­ance at the open­ing of Mindil Beach Mar­kets for 2018 on Thurs­day. Mick, of Mick’s Whips fame, is a long-time at­tendee but things may have got­ten awk­ward if reg­u­lars asked how he had been since they saw him last. Mick was at the cen­tre of an in­ci­dent at his ru­ral Dar­win prop­erty in­volv­ing a shot­gun which ended with an­other man hos­pi­talised with a gun­shot wound to the leg.

Way­ward Hay­ward

GREAT to see that four Com­mon­wealth Games gold medal­lists will visit the RDH and then sign au­to­graphs at the Dar­win Water­front. Ac­cord­ing to a press re­lease, how­ever, star Ter­ri­to­rian rep­re­sen­ta­tive Jeremy Hay

ward was not listed to at­tend. Hope­fully it is wrong and we do get to see the champ.

Mauboy’s strug­gle

EV­ERY Ter­ri­to­rian worth their salt is behind “Our Jess” Mauboy to win Euro­vi­sion in Por­tu­gal when she hits the stage in a cou­ple of weeks. How­ever, a strong anti-Aus­tralian sen­ti­ment is ap­par­ently work­ing against her, just be­cause of the ir­rel­e­vant fact we are not ac­tu­ally lo­cated in Europe. Don’t worry Jess, as soon as you get on that stage and they hear that voice, you will win hearts all over the world.
