From your Monday morning vantage point, everything is uphill. You haven't put a dent in your 40 hours yet, that pile of urgent crap on your desk is as tall as a five-year-old and the weekend is so far away ... so very far away. Take heart, campers. Every Monday night you can Laugh Out Loud at Lola
, the local comedy show hosted by Darius Bradford; and Monday night is much closer in time and space than Friday is. The show begins at 8 p.m., but Lola (500 North 14th Street; 314-621-7277 or www.welovelola.com
) opens at 4 p.m., so if you slip out early you can grab dinner and a cocktail before the place fills up. There's a $10 cover for the show, but that's a small price to pay for easing into your week.
