One of our favourite sushi places Umi Sushi + Udon at Darling Quarter is turning 5 this month and to celebrate they are offering 32% if your total bill. Why 32% you ask? You will have to find out! The offer is from Monday 24 to Sunday 30 October from 5:30pm onwards.



Join us on Friday 30 September at Darling Quarter’s Village Green for the opening of Project Five (Volume 8). The launch party – from 6-9pm – will include tunes from local DJs, and kick start a live painting weekend, with the area transformed into an open-air studio by the Harbour for Project Five’s handpicked street artists (Brett Chan, Georgia Hill, Kaff-eine and Mik Shida). The featured four will continue to paint before an audience on both Saturday 1 and Sunday 2 October (from 12-4pm), producing four works that will be auctioned off on Thursday 27 October, with proceeds going to not-for-profit Monkey Baa Theatre Company. It’s an event filled with energy, vibrancy and creativity as once again the creative community comes together for charity. Curated and produced by aMBUSH Gallery and presented with Darling Quarter as an associated event of Art & About Sydney 2016. Visit for more information on all of our free events.
