Chiverish was started in 2013 not by us, but by Chive On Chicago: a group of devoted weirdos and misfits who wanted to take our online community to the next level. The entire weekend of awesomeness was started by the fans, for the fans.
They came together in Chicago at John Barleycorn complete strangers who called themselves Chivers and Chivettes. They left as a family, and an annual tradition had been born.
The next year, they raised $18,800 for Chive Charities and the 100 Club of Chicago. And they kept setting the bar higher and higher each year after that.
