Weekend Picks: Rocket Science & Salsa with Shayla Rivera



End the weekend with some whole-hearted laughter at Joe’s Bar on Weed St. this Sunday featuring Shayla Rivera, former NASA employee-turned-comedian. At an enormous sports and entertainment center near Lincoln Park, you’ll discover all the amenities for a genuinely good time with the wittiest former scientist in the area presenting “Rocket Science & Salsa”.

With a strong passion for science, Shayla Rivera made her career dreams a reality after working for the space station programs in NASA. Rivera soon discovered her passion for comedy after taking on motivational speaking, and has since skyrocketed in the comedic scene making appearances on prestigious networks, such as Telemundo, Comedy Central, Comics Unleashed, and more. Debuting a comedy show that combines aspects of Rivera’s miscellaneous life, this will be that one-of-a-kind comedy show you won’t want to miss as no late seating will be available.

Joe’s Bar, Home of the Mikey O Comedy Show, is designed with 20,000 square feet of sports bar and private event space ideal for concerts, comedy shows, and good late-night vibes. If you’re planning on making Joe’s your after-hours spot, you can expect to fill up on a hearty contemporary American menu, including build-your-own burgers and pizzas. Get ready for a night of laughs and drinks with a powerhouse Latina at one of Chicago’s booming nightlife venues.
