Five FT Finds

An FTer birthday this week – wish johanmm a happy birthday on 3rd March.

Jenbel and chrissxb have set up a fantastic consolidated do thread. So I’ll soon be looking for 2 new finds to showcase each week. Any suggestions please by PM?

A FT Do in the next 30 days – traditional fare at Las Vegas 2 March, Thai for dinner – yum. There is still time to make it no matter where you are (well maybe not from Timbuktoo).

A FT Do in the next 3-6 months – more fine company, beef and malbec than you can shake a stick at (not that that is necessarily the order of importance :p ). Head to Buenos Aires for Cow Do III 31 Aug – 2 Sep.

Something from the talking heads, err Talk Boardbirdstrike proposes a recurring FT photo contest.

Something random – travellers who want to avoid entering USA (eg due to visa requirements or immigration hassles) have gotten 2 new ways between Australia and NZ and Canada without any stop or transit in USA. First Air NZ announced seasonal (northern winter) flights between Auckland and Vancouver. Second Air Canada announced nonstop flights from the northern winter between Vancouver and Sydney.
