Scavenging for free food night a.k.a. FNO

I've just got back from Fashion's Night Out. It's the fourth year in a row I've gone (I think I've blogged them all too), basically it's a night where the stores around Pitt St mall have sales and promotions and such. I never actually bought anything on a FNO. We only go because there's always free photobooths and free food (ice cream was a thing this year). We're shameless.



UNIQLO under construction and a H&M popup. Sydney is finally growing up *single tear*


Free ice cream #1.



Didn't feel very busy tonight! Might've been the rain.


Free ice cream #2.


The last and best free ice cream, Messina.




Dinner at Jamie's Italian. We didn't have to wait in line, for once, and the food was good. I had food envy for YY's truffle risotto. Next time I might just make an entire meal out of their sides - arancini balls, polenta chips, truffle chips.



That's another year gone by!

  10. Aw man I wish I came this year. I was feeling a little ugh after seven hours of uni but damn those free ice-creams would have made it all alright for me. Did you have a look at H&M? And how was this year compared to the previous years?

    1. Aw 7 hours would do that to anyone. We didn't go into H&M, the line was too long and it was a bit drizzly! It actually seemed a bit pared down this year, fewer places were doing things.

  11. No shame! The free ice cream and pictures would get me there too. Looks fun and the props in the photobooths are hilarious

  13. Aw looks like so much fun... I didn't know they were handing out free food, you should've given us Sydney Siders a forewarning haha.

  14. Free ice cream is always good. I think I'd go anywhere with that promise :)

  15. So cute! Looks like you guys had so much fun! And w00t they are opening a Uniqlo near you?! That sounds fantastic. There is another one opening here in Chicago in...October of next year?? It's weird how Uniqlo is kind of going super mainstream (I mean I am happy, but at the same time a little sad...)

    1. Aw well at least you got to have Italian gelato! But yeah Messina kills it with the flavour combos. "What a beautiful time to be alive" SO TRUE

  17. Free food (not to mention ICE CREAM!) is reason enough to go to anything! Looks like you had fun! *.*

    1. It was just a popup store with some of their stuff, just to promo I guess since they're opening here quite soon.

  22. Not sure if my previous comment went through so, I'm trying again. Oh man, the free food and photos sound great. Here in Amsterdam last Thursday was the first FNO but it was only in this very uptight district and I didn't get a lot of vibes about free food... maybe next time when it's bigger and better :p

    1. Haha was it a pretentious thing? Maybe next time it'll be better (i.e. free ice cream too)

  23. Uhm, Sydney makes Toronto look like a primitive settlement. WE DON'T EVEN HAVE UNIQLO OR A JAMIE'S RESTAURANT :( (It totes felt like a whole new world when I saw all these places in London)
    But pft, free stuff is what defines your early adulthood. UNAPOLOGETIC.
