Summer is rolling out and Autumn is rolling in and with the new season comes a whole swathe of events we're keen to hit up. From dining deals to engaging exhibitions to Mardi Gras parties left and right, there's no shortage of things to do in Sydney this month. 

We're excited to enjoy some cooler weather with scenic walks and cosy aperitivo hours. To help you make the most of this March, we've rounded up the best of what's on in Sydney this month.

Pasta Club at Grana 

In some of the greatest food news we've received this year, Grana has announced that they are introducing a weekly pasta club that we are, naturally, desperate to be a part of. Each week, Grana will curate a three-course pasta feast plus side salad, tiramisu cannoli and matched alcoholic drinks....for $99. Impeccable value if you ask us. Each pasta dish will be a one-off creation, not seen again on the menu so you can attend every week to explore new flavours.
