The BurbSec organization celebrates hacking, privacy and information security each and every week, and we thought “what better way to unwind after THOTCON than to open our doors, enjoy a local pint, and celebrate Chicago’s InfoSec community with old friends and new?”

BurbSecCon, just like BurbSec itself, is an informal hangout at a local pub that has been growing in popularity and fun every year. Unlike BurbSec, we have free beer and coffee, game shows, an open mic (for presentations), and folks like TOOOL running fun tables.

THOTCON draws in many infosec enthusiasts from well outside the Chicagoland region, making this a particularly anticipated event, and we’d love to give these travelers a reason to stay and check out our beautiful city through the weekend.

Once we’re finished here, you’ll be in the middle of Logan Square, one of the most happening neighborhoods in the city, and just 2 miles from Wicker Park, which is also pretty darn hip.


NO. BurbSecCon is not affiliated with, and will definitely not have the formality of a typical Bsides.


Geeks! Nerds! Muggles! Boating enthusiasts! The primary purpose of the event is to be a “super-chill, low-key” hangout at a small pub. We WILL have:

• A NEW VENUE!!! This one is an entire bar\venue all to ourselves, and a bit closer to THOTCON

• FREE Pizza and Drinks! (including some GREAT beers) courtesy of our incredibly generous sponsors! You’re also welcome to bring your own food into the venue (or order delivery).

• A single, unorganized, open-mic stage with a projector. Talk lineup will be determined via Ro-Sham-Bo between dueling staff members representing the talks they like. See a staff member once you arrive! Non-infosec talks preferred!

• The return of the BRING YOUR OWN BADGE CONTEST!! Prizes will be awarded for the best homemade badges!

• Games! Probably some board games. Bring your own!

• Whatever else we drunkenly invent!


BurbSecCon will be held in one of Chicago’s most popular neighborhoods, Logan Square, at:

• Crown Liquors – 2821 N Milwaukee Ave – https://goo.gl/maps/DsB3NxyqMj52

• Parking isn’t great in this area. If you must bring your own vehicle, try SpotHero or ParkWhiz, or hope to find a pay box.

• For the public-transit minded, Crown is about 1 block from the Logan Square Blue Line stop, and the 56 bus will drop you off very close. Finally, a Lyft driver is often less than 2-minutes away. Note the Blue Line can also take you all the way into O’Hare, so bring your bags!


Nothing! We will be enforcing a strict Bring-Your-Own-Badge policy and 150-PERSON LIMIT, so make your own badge for the contest or bring a badge from home you feel is the most (in)appropriate.
