From tantalising culinary pop-ups to beautiful art installations, meticulously folded knitwear, spicy bowls of ramen and one hell of a Bloody Mary, there's something to suit every taste this weekend in Sydney!


Lane Four At The Galeries Present Crystal Cages

Sydney's public art space Lane Four at the Galeries has launched an exciting new exhibit by local artist Jess Bush. The intimate series of large-scale paintings, entitled Crystal Cages, explores the implicit nature of the human condition and has been exclusively commissioned for Lane Four. The exhibition is open to the public for free and will run throughout May and June.


Many Hands Launch Party

Many Hands Events (formerly Pop-Up Ethical) will be hosting a pop-up restaurant at Paddington United Church Hall. Expect a multi-sensory collaboration of sustainable and local artists, designers, musicians, farmers and chefs--with everything showcased throughout the evening handcrafted specifically for the event. Tickets here.


The Bloody Mary Garden

Start your Saturday with a kick at Rushcutters! Join Ketel One Brand Ambassador and Bloody Mary enthusiast Chris Hysted as he takes you on a journey of exploration into Australia's most-loved cocktail, the Bloody Mary. Chris' homemade spice mix will also be available to purchase on the day, allowing guests to recreate their perfect Bloody Mary at home.


UNIQLO Pop Up Store Sydney

Beat the winter blues with some colourful cashmere and light-weight Heattech at the UNIQLO pop-up in Pitt Street Mall. While the Japanese fashion stalwart has already opened a mammoth store in Melbourne, for the time being this is Sydney's taste of what's to come (UNIQLO plan to open a permanent store later this year!!!), and will be open from May till September.


Romance Was Born & Rebecca Baumann: Reflected

This is your last chance to catch the stunning collaboration between creative powerhouse Romance Was Born and artist Rebecca Baumann in Reflected. Staged at Carriageworks to coincide with Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia, this is Romance Was Born's first exhibition and is a must on your cultural calendar.


Mother's Day Celebrations

Treat your mum to a fine dining experience this Mother's Day, with our round up of What To Do On Mother's Day In Sydney. But if none of these delectable establishments take your fancy, there will also be delicious Mother's Day menus at The Winery, MoVida and Manly Wine. Bookings essential.


Ramen Nights At Paper Planes

As Bondi farewells its sun-filled days, contemporary Japanese restaurant Paper Planes at 'The Beach House' has introduced a very special winter ramen menu. At just $15 a serve (and $5 on the first Monday each month), this spicy, protein-laden broth is the perfect way to warm up—yes please!
