FOOD: Being stuck downtown all summer can be a drag, but the City of Toronto aims to add a little relaxation to our work week with Fresh Wednesdays. Every Wednesday from now until the end of summer, purchase fresh Ontario-grown produce, wild honey, deli meats, flowers, and delicious baked goods on your lunch hour, all while taking in a free outdoor concert. Today, catch the smooth jazz of Daniela Nardi’s Espresso Manifesto. Nathan Phillips Square (100 Queen Street West), 10 a.m.–2 p.m., FREE.

MUSICAL IMPROV: Swan Song: Musical Improv Mixer debuts tonight with a delightful cast of Torontonian improvisors, hosted by Jess Grant, with Stephanie Sheri on piano and Jeremy Voltz on guitar. Audience participation is encouraged; so you can sit back and be enchanted by the completely improvised musical love story, or insert yourself into it. Black Swan Tavern (154 Danforth Avenue), 8p.m., $5.

TRIVIA: Is Jeopardy your favourite show? Do you annoy your friends with an arsenal of useless facts? Then Trivia Club IV: A New Hope is the place for you. Sign your team up beforehand, or go alone and make new friends as you battle like-minded individuals in three rounds of pop culture and general knowledge trivia questions. Cardinal Rule (5 Roncesvalles Avenue), 10p.m., FREE.

THEATRE: Whether you want to see a musical or sketch comedy, stirring drama or weird performance, the Toronto Fringe Festival has over 150 different shows, with something for just about every taste—and the best way to narrow down which shows to see is by checking out our 2012 Fringe coverage.
