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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
