Moloko Comedy Happy Hour: $3 Grilled Cheese and Draft Beers, Free Laughs

The second week of the month is busy in Wynwood, with art walk this Saturday. Add a little comedy to that mix on Thursday at Moloko in the Shops at Midtown, which offers laughs the second Thursday of every month. Share some laughs and some happy hour specials with friends.

Moloko opened in early 2012 and it's a wonder that not more people know about it. The coffee shop serves up crepes, grilled cheese, soups, and other goodies. For comedy Thursdays, you'll want to arrive at 8ish to secure a good seat. Come with company, but don't count on getting the same chair, as Moloko has all mismatched furniture. It's part of its charm.

Nine to ten comics will take the stage corner nook and share their comical wisdom for free, all for the love of comedy. Listen up while you sip $2 draft beers -- Orange Blossom Pilsner or IPA Due South -- or $4 wines. Food specials alternate, with a soup and grilled sandwich special available for $8 (regular price is $11). Or you can get a grilled cheese for $3. A beer and grilled cheese for five dolla'? Nothing funny about that.

Local comedians change every month in order to keep things fresh. Laughs continue until closing (around 1 a.m.). Make sure to have the Nutella banana bread. It's not part of the happy hour specials, but it's special on its own.
