The second annual Chicago Blackhawks Convention takes place this weekend, July 17-19, at the downtown Hilton (720 S. Michigan Avenue). The organization released a complete schedule, which includes autograph/photo sessions and panel discussions.
Perhaps one of the best features of the convention is the Second City performance taking place on Friday, July 17. Some of the Blackhawks (prankster Adam Burish seems a likely candidate, no?) will team up with two “Chicago icons”–and former Second City actors–to put on a hilarious, sports-themed skit for the fans.
Saturday is the big day, with the convention beginning at 9 a.m. and going until about 7 p.m. There will be various panel discussions throughout the day, where you’ll see both former and current Hawks, as well as some of the big kahunas from the front office. Autograph/photo sessions will also be taking place all… day… long.
While passes for the Hawks Convention sold out a long time ago, there are still plenty of passes on eBay, StubHub and other broker-type websites. Keep in mind, though, you may have to pick up the pass at the Hilton or at some other Chicago location, as the convention is going on this weekend!
