Raise a glass to Harry

HARRY-CARAY-STATUE-061306-900

Join the Cubs and Harry Caray’s Tavern tonight for the 15th Annual Worldwide Toast to Harry Caray. As is tradition, fans from around the world will raise a Budweiser (Harry’s drink of choice) or other beverage in the legendary broadcaster’s memory.

The toast to Harry Caray will take place Feb. 28 at 5:30 p.m. CST at Harry Caray’s Tavern on Navy Pier. Hall of Famer Ernie Banks will join Dutchie Caray, Cubs owner Tom Ricketts, Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan and other celebs to lead the toast.

This year’s toast is to “The Year of the Fan.” At 6 p.m., there will be a fireworks show over Lake Michigan, and guests will receive special hologram glasses that make the fireworks turn into thousands of little Harry images.

Over the years, more than five million fans from all 50 states and more than 100 countries have joined in the annual toast to the legendary broadcaster. If you can’t make it to Harry Caray’s tonight, just raise a glass to Harry at 5:30 p.m. local time anywhere in the world and tweet your toast using the hashtag #ToastToHarry.
