Every hump day until the end of August, Evergreen Brick Works is hosting Summer Wednesday, an evening of al fresco fun, featuring food and activities for the whole family. Admission is free, but for a bit extra, attendees can enjoy wood-fired cooking by Forno Cultura, made-to-order meals from a rotating roster of food trucks and beer from Collective Arts Brewing. Here’s what to expect:

Forno Cultura is manning Evergreen’s wood-fired oven this summer, cooking up platters of roasted vegetables, fresh bread, and, on one day, albacore tuna and sardines from Honest Weight:
