CRUMBS! Friday Mar 6

ATTENDEES at the Northern Territory Convention Bureau function on 24 Feb will know all about the NT ‘finger wave’.
For those not in the know, NT ‘Mate’ and chef at Pei Modern, where the event was held, Lynton Tapp spoke about the index-finger salute used to acknowledge and thank other people in the NT, generally while driving.
The packed event saw NT flavours served, including buffalo ricotta croquettes, and BEN discussing the gesture with some of the more than 120 guests.
We infer it’s much like the ‘Force wave’ used at pedestrian crossings, to thank Sydney drivers for not mowing you down, and the thumbs up in Western society (although not in Roman society, obviously).
