The Happier Hour is a monthly event series bringing philosophy out of the ivory tower of academia and into our modern day agora: the bar. It’s like the self-help section– only way funnier, smarter, and with booze. And now it’s a podcast too! #thehappierhour Doors 3:30pm, show 4:00pm. Tickets $15 adv / $20 door. 21+ Monica McCarthy is the creator and host of The Happier Hour: Philosophy To Help Life Suck Less.

Most recently, Monica is honored to be a Founding Faculty Member for The School of Life in North America. She is also passionate about actual happy hour (pass the bubbly) and speakeasies (pass the bourbon). Monica’s interest in philosophy began at Pepperdine University as a student in The Great Books Colloquium.Monica is also an actress, and has performed on Broadway and in television and film, from from NYC to LA to Japan to the UK.
