Michael Jordan turns 50 on Feb. 17.

Now, while there's no word on where His Airness will be spending his special day, we've got the 411 on how all the Michael Jordan's Steak Houses will be celebrating, including the Chicago outpost on the Mag Mile.

They're each hosting a five-course Terlato wine dinner that pays homage to the basketball legend's life and career with dishes such as shrimp cocktail with 23-spice cocktail sauce, "Maxwell Street"-style Duroc pork tenderloin and a 50-day dry-aged Wagyu ribeye steak. That's $125 per person.

If you cannot make the wine dinner and just happen to be dining in the main dining room on Feb. 17, your table will be treated to a complimentary slice of the decadent 23-layer chocolate cake.

And there's one more way to celebrate his birthday—and you don't even have to be in one of the restaurants to participate: You can bid on a number of autographed wine bottles and NBA basketballs. Each bottle was hand selected by Jordan and 100 percent of the proceeds benefit a number of charities, including Meals on Wheels Chicago. You can bid right here.
