Chi-Fi Lives?

So back in January I reported on the cancellation of a new Chicago SF con, apparently by getting dissed by some of the hotel staff. They promised to hold a one-day event the end of March and so they are:

Chi-Fi is here!

Chi-Fi is a convention celebrating geekdom. Whether you were a geek since long before it was "cool" or are only now discovering your inner geek, we welcome you at Chi-Fi. We know that there are many different varieties of geek out there. No matter what kind of geek you are, there is a place for you at Chi-Fi.

Our inaugural event, Chi-Fi 0, will take place on March 29, 2014 from 3PM to 3AM at the historic Palmer House Hilton Hotel in downtown Chicago. There will be fantastic guests including Jason Carter (Marcus from Babylon 5), musicians SJ Tucker, Kieran Strange, the great Luke Ski, Time Crash, and more! There are exciting panels including cosplay, Homestuck, geek culture, After Dark, and gaming. Bristol Ren Faire will be on hand to entertain. There may even be a surprise or two. Registration is only $15. Register now!

In mid-March 2015, we will return for our first full-weekend convention. We are bringing you even more exciting guests, engaging panels and after dark entertainment. Support Chi-Fi bypre-registering for Chi-Fi 2015 today and gain free admission to Chi-Fi 0!

I don't know any more about details, but they got the Palmer House, a very elegant Chicago hotel, and free registration if you pre-register for the March 2015 Chi-Fi 1.

I think Chi-Fi 0 sounds like a cool idea.
