    Holy cow, it's that time of year again.

    Fans of the late legendary Cubs broadcaster Harry Caray will raise a glass in his honor March 1st at the 14th annual worldwide toast.

    Caray's widow, Dutchie, former player Ernie Banks and numerous other luminaries will gather at Harry Caray's restaurant at Navy Pier to celebrate.

    The toast will occur at 5:45 p.m., followed by a rendition of "Take Me Out to the Ballgame."

    Cast members from the "Million Dollar Quartet" will also perform at the event.

    Fans from more than 120 countries annually participate in the toast.

    And in honor of Harry -- beer is the preferred beverage of choice in your glass.
