Good to see some money was returned to +Australia Council for the Arts​ but it's a far cry from what was yanked to establish the Brandis Fund for Excellent Art (now known as Catalyst).

The Australia Council welcomes the return of funding announced today by the Minister for the Arts.

Fascinating and frightening account of predicting crime. While I espouse the value of data to help understand ourselves and our world, some of the parameters relied on are as hokey as foreknowledge from precogs.

The larey cockatoo wall paper sets the tone for what to expect inside—a boho basement filled and a menagerie of loud-shirt-wearing bar guys, a tight drinks menu and toilets that have taken small space architecture very seriously.

The whole offering at Two Trees is simple, stylish and tasty—the coffee, the sandwiches and the guys who work there!

Let Clarity's knowledgeable staff will talk you through their collection of punk, metal and rock records. Unpretentious advice given by record store cuties!

Nuri's is a must if you are in Ubud. But the BBQ and the Indonesian menus serve super tasty meals. Totally recommend the chicken and beef burgers but if it's your first time you gotta get the ribs! And if you are lucky they will call you, 'Darling' (which isn't how everyone is greeted apparently!)

Think vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free, low-carb Grease. (Actually the Tiki decor is more like Grease 2, which was better than Grease anyway!)

Wander the aisles for the things you need and the things you need to try. Look out for Silver Queen dark chocolate with cashews and orange peel, the beer fridge and the assortment of tropical fruits!

Finding good food in Kings Cross and Potts Point is difficult. Finding good coffee is much harder. When Glider opened that got a lot easier. The breakfast menu features much you would expect, but there are a few Glider-specific items worth exploring. Try the banana, peanut butter and blue gum honey toast or the sticky rice with honeydew and mango. Declaring itself an espresso bar and an Asian eat house, not only will you get a great coffee, there's an exciting contemporary Asian menu to dine from. Come lunch you can get banana blossoms and duck salad, green papaya and prawn salad or a 'glider' burger of Peking duck on brioche. Get in early if you want one of their duck rice paper rolls, they go quick!
