Here's one more reason to love Darlinghurst's haven of hip hop, cheese and wine Big Poppa's: it's putting together a big night of carbs and vino in the form of a five-course pasta degustation. That's almost half a dozen different handmade pasta dishes to enjoy while you sip wine from northern Italy and bop your head to hip hop beats.

You'll enjoy blue swimmer crab fusilli paired with chilli and thai basil, poached quail tortellini, and beef cheek ragu served with a fresh pappardelle pasta, all created by Big Poppa's Executive Chef Liam Driscoll. And there'll be a couple of veggie dishes in the mix, too, including the triangoli stuffed with butternut pumpkin and tortiglioni with roasted ox-heart tomatoes, star anise and stracciatella.

The degustation is $75 for five courses and you can add on matched wines for $50 (total $125). If you choose the latter, each dish will be paired with a glass of vino from Marion and Corte Lavel — two labels run by the same family from the Veneto region in the north of Italy. You'll start with a floral pinot bianco and work your way through to a velvety and spicy 2013 red.

Big Poppa's pasta degustation will take place from 6.30–9.30pm.
