Merivale is at it again for the annual March into Merivale event! This year it’s back and more exciting than ever with “Guilty Pleasures” as the theme. Launching on Wednesday, 10th February, it will run for the rest of the month and throughout March.
Justin Hemmes, CEO of Merivale, said: “Over the past seven years, March into Merivale has transformed from its humble beginnings into one of the most anticipated events on Sydney’s culinary calendar. Across five incredible weeks, the 2016 festival shines the spotlight on our diverse hospitality portfolio and celebrates the wealth of talent leading Merivale into our most exciting year yet”.
For those who have never been, the way it works is that there is a different type of event for each day of the week at different Merivale venues throughout Sydney. This year, Mondays are for learning, Tuesdays and Thursdays let you enjoy some of the best food you can get in Sydney. Cocktails and champagne are in the spotlight on hump day Wednesdays. Friday and Saturdays are for partying!
