If you didn't have plans at 5:55pm CST March 1, you do now.
That's when the 13th annual Worldwide Toast to Harry Caray happens at Harry Caray's. New this year is also a tribute to Cubs announcer Ron Santo, who passed away in 2010.
The event occurs every year on this particular day because it's Caray's birthday, so fans in more than 100 countries raise their glasses in a simultaneous toast.
High-profile guests expected to attend the official celebration at the River North venue include Tom Ricketts, Ron Santo, Jr., Richard Dent and Dutchie Caray.
If you cannot make it, there will be a "virtual" toast in which you can participate on Facebook right here.
